Mickey was such a kind lady a true joy to behold. She had a gentle smile and a welcoming hug. She shared her wisdom with me in Bible Study at the Legion, "Pancakes and a Psalm." She loved her Lord, her church and all the children. May God be with you as you mourn. May the memories that come to mind warm your heart. Be comforted in the knowledge that Mickey is safe and secure in the arms of the Savior.
