My Great Aunt Mikey will be laid to rest today. Sending love and strength to the family that could attend today. I am thankful for the time I spent with her last Thanksgiving and her being able to be with her family together. I will never forget the many memories of summers in Missouri as a little girl and of course drinking Dr. Pepper with her any chance I could get. This woman loved her Dr. Pepper! Love to all and rest easy Aunt Mikey with Uncle Fred, Great Grandma Mary and Grandpa Stokes in Heaven!

Caffeine free Dr. Pepper and loving hugs are what come to mind when I think of Paula. I did not have grandparents growing up, so when Emily and I became friends Paula filled that void with fun games (Train & Rumi), girl lunches, and wisdom when I needed some wise advice. I am sure I can speak for many but Paula touched my life in most ways people don't get to experience. The memory of her and the times we had together I will cherish for a life time. She may not be here with us physically but she is with us spiritually being a Guardian Angel looking over the family. My deepest condolences.

Susan and Ben, I'm so sorry for your loss, I know how much Aunt Mikey was a huge part of your lives. She was always there, be it a parade watching the Lassies, a baseball or a football game, she was there. All the fun we had growing up together, and the holidays together...precious memories I will always hold dear. Aunt Mikey was always there for us. Now she's watching over us!
