    Mindy and family, I’m so sorry to hear that your mom has passed away. I just recently was informed that your father had passed earlier this year. My heart goes out to each and everyone of you, I respected both your parents and I know they will be greatly missed.

    It’s been said that time will heal all pains, I do believe that.
    It will take a while but, the pain, the emptiness and the loneliness of the loss of your parents will be slowly filled with memories of laughter, silliness and all things good.
    I will pray for all of you to have peace knowing that they are in a better place and are rejoicing in heaven.
    I wish you all well and I’m truly sorry for your loss

    Mindy, I’m so sorry for your loss.
    I didn’t know your mom, her time at Meijer was before I got there. But I did hear, she always went above and beyond for others.
    May she now rest high on that mountain 🙏🏼
    My deepest sympathies to you and your family 🙏🏼♥️

    My Aunt was an amazing women not only was she beautiful but a loving Sister Aunt Mother Grandmother Wife Friend. She always had a little laugh and could talk to you in her sweet little voice , or if riled she could put you in your place in a matter of seconds, so many times at the reunions she would make her way around hugging and a kiss on the cheek to greet you always brought a smile to your fave, and if a little party was taking place at the green turtle you might even get a wet willy, oh all the wonderful memories we have! Love you Auntie please give Mom a hug from me!
