"Mickey" was the very best friend I ever had. We worked together at Northrop and have been friends for 50 years. We worked, played, laughed and cried together. She will be missed for the rest of my life.
I too, want to thank Mary for all her love and help. No one could have been better.

I am so sorry for your loss. She lived such a long and full life, it is a tragedy that it was cut short. May God be with the family in this time of sadness. God doesn't want us to suffer and die like we do now. That is why he offers us a wonderful hope for the future where death and suffering are no more (Revelation 21:3,4). Knowing that there is a future for my loved ones who have passed is a great comfort to me. I hope that you can be comforted by this thought as well. I am sorry again for your loss.

I was so blessed to have had Aunt Mickey not only as an aunt, but as the best godmother anyone could ever have asked for. She never once missed a birthday or a holiday, or a special occasion. She had a special gift for making everyone she came in contact with feel very special--and that goes for the particularly shy, insecure person that I was as a child. My love and admiration for her are boundless, and I will definitely miss having her in my life.

A special thank you to Mary for looking after Mickey during her most difficult period and for keeping in touch with me and my husband during that time.
