"Besides my Dad, Aunt Mimi was my Mom?s best friend. When Mom got sick, Aunt Mimi was there to help no matter what. She helped my Dad after I had to go back to Florida and was a true angel. She always greeted me with a big hug and smile to match. Prayers for peace and strength to you; Barb, Bill, Don, and Uncle Herb. While she will be greatly missed here, imagine the flurry of ?Polish Pills? waiting for her in heaven ??"
