Haleigh Raye’s & Noah Dean’s Recipe of Love

Jessica Mills Winstead contributed two dessert recipes in our 2010 Christmas issue along with her step-mother, Priscilla Mills and daughter, Haleigh Raye. On July 4th Jessica’s son, Noah Dean Winstead, and his good friend Nate Lynam died while swimming at a marina on Cherokee Lake. The tragic event deeply touched the community and the boys’ funeral was among the largest  attendances in the history of Morristown.   Over the past 5 months Jessica has shared glimpses into her personal struggle to accept and cope with her “new normal.”   In keeping with her recurring message to family and friends to not take one another for granted, hold tightly onto faith and to embrace each moment as if it were their last.

Jessica shares about the love Haleigh Raye and Noah Dean had for each other and developed the ‘Haleigh Raye and Noah Dean’s Recipe for Love’. 

Jessica tells us one of Noah’s ways of expressing love was never ever leaving Haleigh Raye out when something good came his way – like when his grandparents would frequently treat him to something. “If there is anything Haleigh Raye and He couldn’t walk out of a store without sayNoah Dean had for each other it was ing, “Can I get something for Haleigh Raye?” love. They really were best friends. I was And, of course, the answer was always yes. blessed to be a witness to it every day, “ says Jessica. “A couple of years ago Ha- “Many times I have sat and reminisced leigh Raye came up with using the word about how they loved each other in ac‘LOVE’ instead of saying “goodbye” when tions,” says Jessica... it “melts my heart now leaving or hanging up the phone.  Her because I took that and a million other litreasoning was she wanted an enthusi- tle things for granted then. Expressing love astic  “LOVE!” to be the last word she said is something I have learned from them and to the other person should something I not only want to share that with people I happen to either of them.” love in my own life but also encourage it for anyone who will listen.” One of her regrets with Noah is that “LOVE” actually didn’t end up being the Love like there is no tomorrow and take it last words they exchanged with each to heart.   And remember what love really other. One day -- as she reflected on that is….1 Cor 13:4-5, ‘Love is patient, love is -- Jessica recalls looking at her and say- kind, it does not envy it does not boast, it ing, “But think, Haleigh Raye, how many is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it times you did get to say it to Noah. is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, Probably over 1,000 times he heard the it keeps no records of wrongs.’   Jessica reword LOVE come from your mouth and minds us that we should all love like that he knew you meant it.” -- and love like it is a recipe:
