  1. Aunt Mima, you will always be in our hearts and minds. It was always wonderful to see you and Uncle Larry when we got together for family times even though they were spread out sometimes. I (Marlene) will always remember your beautiful southern accent it always made me think of your sister, Leona (Grandma Register) who will love and miss also. But, you are all together now smiling down at us here with no worries or pain anymore. Someday we will all be together and talk about all that good southern food.

    Love always.

    Your great nephew John, Marlene (his wife) and our boys, Adam, Jason and Eric

  2. Dear Mom/Nana,
    I hope you are finally at peace.
    You seem to have left us on Your terms.
    It doesn’t seem possible that you are gone. We wished you a Happy 93rd Birthday on Monday, 2/13/12. You slipped away, sooo quietly, peacefully on Tuesday, 2/14/12 Valentine’s Day, the day for lovers. Now, you are with your love. you’re with Papa, where you belong. I’m sure one of the first thing’s you did was to say, ‘LAR RY, let me comb your hair’:) When we think of you & Papa, we’ll just smile, chuckle, and say, ‘They were really something:)
    Rest in Peace Sweetie, your struggles are over. Your with ‘Your Larry’, all of your loved ones. There’s Peace In the Valley. Now You’re Home.
    All My Love,
    Your Daughter Di Ya Yaan oxox

  3. I am so glad that I was there to see you on your 93rd Birthday on February 13th and tell you that I love you and give you hugs and kisses. I never knew it would be my last time to ever see you again. Always know how much I love you Nani Banani even though I wasn’t there to visit you much. I am so relieved that you are finally at peace and not in any pain at all. You knew it was time to go be with Your Papa again and be reunited with your true love and the rest of your brothers and sisters and family. You didn’t want to go through that awful hip surgery, so you just closed your eyes and drifted to sleep to join all the angels in heaven. You will forever be missed and an true angel to watch over all of us with Papa. You are at peace. I will forever cherrish all the wonderful memories growing up and spending so much time at your house. Those were the BEST days of my life and I will always look back on those days with a smile. I love and miss you always. Rest in Peace with God and the Angels and give Papa a BIG KISS for me. All My Love Forever….Neecie xoxoxoxoxo

  4. Nana,
    The image of you cranking open the window in front of the kitchen sink to burst out your famous ‘LAAA-REEEE!’, as Papa would chuckle and come to your beckon call; is forever burned into my mind’s eye. It will always bring me joy to recall as will the love you two shared. It’s a model we should all be so lucky to emulate.
    Though, I have been largely absent living on the west coast, I hope you alway knew I loved you as I do my entire family who I miss each day.
    Rest peacefully Nana and say hello to Pop.

  5. To all the Mima Schichler family.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. We trust all our departed loved ones are looking down and smiling. Uncle Larry and Aunt Mima can be together again!

    May God bless you. We love you,

    James & Tamara, Joe and all the Duggan family.
