$4 of every unit sold goes directly back to the designated early education site where the teacher works or where the child is enrolled. 

DELIVERY is THIS FRIDAY, November 15th between 3-6pm. Prompt pick up is mandatory. 


These pies are delicious and unforgettable. Tell people that have a taste how they can get one (or several) of their own next November!



Henry Caudle, age 4, passed away on Thursday, January 24, 2019. He was attending TDC's Crestview Learning Center in Topeka, Kansas on the day of his death.

Henry was born January 1, 2015, at Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, Missouri. Before his birth, he was diagnosed with a severe congenital heart defect, Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome, HLHS. Despite having only half of a heart, no child loved more fully than Henry. Despite three heart surgeries before he was three and a half, he always enjoyed the company of those around him. He was always ready to greet his family, friends, classmates, nurses, and doctors with a hug and a laugh. 

Like any four year old, his joys were simple. He enjoyed being read stories, especially Pete the Cat; he loved watching his favorite cartoon, PAW Patrol; he loved playing games like Connect 4; he was great at doing jigsaw puzzles; and, he loved going out to eat, because it meant seeing more places and meeting new people. 

Perhaps Henry’s favorite thing to do was to swing. If he managed to convince you to push him on a swing, you were likely to be there for half an hour - or more, if you let him. 

Henry is survived by his parents, Paige and Jason Caudle, and cat, Lily. His light shone briefly, but brightly, searing himself into the memories of all who knew him. Henry, we love you. Always.


As a tribute to Henry, TDC Learning Centers, Inc. is raising funds to support the creation of a playground memorial. There will be a dedication ceremony this August if funds can be raised for an engraved park bench, plague and additional swing. Bless you for considering a small donation to make this special event happen at the place where Henry experienced so much joy and laughter.

TDC is a 501(c)(3) organization established in 1963 to provide care and early learning instruction to children across the Greater Topeka area. To learn more about Henry’s life and journey, please visit fellowshipofthecaudles.blogspot.
