Minnie was always there to greet me and invite me to Empty Nester events. She was always smiling, friendly and warm toward me. I appreciated her warmth and kindness. Condolences to her family and friends. I know it is so hard to lose such a loved one.

The first time I met Minnie, was at the family home in Sparks, Nevada. Her son, Dennis, had invited me over one day when he was going to help his mom, by crawling under the house to check on something.
Minnie's piercing beautiful eyes made me draw breath.

Over the years of life tribulations, Minnie showed much kindness in supporting my art endeavors and also the struggle with the loss of her son, my friend.

It's wonderful to know so many loved her.
Sending all best wishes of peace and love to her family and friends.
Thank you for everything, Minnie, may your spirit be flying high!!
