  1. All my sympathy. I learned so much from Mickie and always appreciated her sense of humor.

  2. To my longtime best friend, Mickie. There is an empty

    chair at our holiday table and an empty spot in my heart. But oh, the

    memories. That’s what it’s all about. Caring and sharing, crying and

    laughing, chatting then shaking our fists at the world, always trying to make

    the rest see things our way.

    I am just grateful, as the images pass through my mind, that we crossed

    paths, became so close and supported each other through rough seas.

    Thank you, Mickie, I love you and always will. Rest gently.

  3. Mickie love you so you will be missed greatly. Will always remember the picket fences you, Beverly and I passed and still made it home safe. Was also glad when you finally decided to accept Chuck. We sure had a lot of fun and good time for all those years. I do know you are up there looking down on us and still being the caring person you are and taking care of us love you forever your friend Jo Harvey

  4. What a blessing to have known Mickie for the past 5 years. She was a hoot. We shared many laughs, stories and she gave me great advice time to time. I was so happy to finally meet Hank a few months ago. I pray for comfort and peace for all her friends and loved ones.

    Thank you Monte,

    Lynne Downing

  5. Mickey, you were one of a kind. — a loyal friend and loved one. Our special occasions will be a little hollow without you, and the world less enjoyable because you are not here. Thank you for the good times.
