I had the privilege of getting to know Midge when we shared the secretarial job at our church's Christian school. She was a wonderful friend with a beautiful testimony of knowing the Lord Jesus Christ as her Savior. She was a real character, and there will never be another like her. I will miss her dearly.

This is my mother. She was a wonderful person and the very best mother anyone could have to raise them. She was handed lemons and made the best lemonade for my brother and I. She did her very best at providing a safe, comfortable, environment for us to grow up. She made life enjoyable. Scouting, camping, fishing, canoeing and weeks at the New Jersey shore. She received JESUS Christ as her savior at age 13 while attending a Christian Youth summer camp. I am glad KNOWING she is rejoicing in the glorious presence of Jesus Christ her savior.
