    I knew Mimi and Richard as customers and neighbors of Lake Shore Country Club. They were a wonderful couple. I am sorry for your loss, but happy they were around so many years for you. Be blessed

    Aunt Mimi had a great sense of humor, the ability to put problems in perspective, and I think what I inherited from her was her ability to find silver linings, however dark the cloud. In many ways she had a lovely life, and certainly a wonderful and loving and devoted husband. But these past few years have been a trial. Her indomitable spirit has been tested but never broken. What I will miss most– what I have missed most in recent years– is her candor, and her laugh. She is with Uncle Richard again, and with her mother, sister, and brother . . . and, most of all, with Christ.
