  1. Marvin, My thoughts and prayer are with you. I miss Mildred,I will miss her telling me how tickled she was, when she would see me “sit on my heels, then pop right back up again”, everyday when I would put lotion on her legs. I love you Mildred. Louise

  2. Marvin:

    Sorry to hear of your loss. Knowing what a devoted son you were, I’m sure that this will leave a great void in your daily existence, but it will create great opportunity to enrich your life in memory of your mom.

    Best regards.

    EllynAnne and Hank

  7. We will miss our Aunt Mimi more than words can say. She was more of a “mother” to us than anyone can imagine. We are now rejoicing with gladness that she can be with all the loved ones who have gone before her and we know they are celebrating the wonderful reunion.
    We loved you so much, Aunt Mimi.

  8. My Aunt Mimi is the last of her family and Uncle Bud’s family. We will miss her very much, but am sure she is having a great time with her family above. I love you Aunt Mimi!

  9. I’ll miss my dear Aunt Mimi more than words can say. Baking cookies, having an occassional swig of Pepsi, not scolding me for sweeping the crumbs off of the countertop right on to the floor and those fabulous hugs of hers…a wonderful part of my life is gone.
