My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Mindy and I became really close over the past year. I cherish the memories of the time we spent together and our lengthy, sometimes late night phone conversations. She had an amazing sense of humor and impeccable taste in music. On many occasions she would have me laughing so hard we would both be in tears. She would then say, if anyone were to hear what we talk about they would think we were crazy! Mindy was real! If she said it, she meant it. She was a true friend. I will miss her terribly, but know that I will see her again someday.

Dear Tracy & family,
I was saddened to hear the news about Mindy's passing.
I worked with her for several years in the Medical Record Dept.
at Palmetto Health Richland. She was such a kind and sweet friend.
We would eat lunch together most days. I am sorry to say I haven't kept in touch with her for quite some time.
You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. May God be with you now and in the difficult days ahead.
May God Bless.
