Midge, you were such a fun Mom! Your Sharon was the best friend I ever had and we even shared the same birthday; I miss her so much. I know you had quite the "greeting" when you arrived at the gates of Heaven from all of your loved ones. Debbie, you have been such a wonderful daughter, taking care of her, and so much more. Rest in Peace, Sweet Lady.

Aunt Midge, soar with the angels but try to behave when you meet up with my Mom. You will be forever remembered iny heart. Although we were far from each other in miles I have always thought of you dearly. May the family you left behind get comfort knowing you are at peace and no longer in pain. I am sure you were welcomed in Heaven by those who loved you
