Sis. Mickey was a dear friend to and for me. She was one of my prayer confidants. We enjoyed talking about flowers. I have many cutting that will be a constant reminder of our fun together. I always enjoyed her stories of her and Norman’s shrimping adventures and her hunting and trapping. She even had her time with taxidermy. She was to me an interesting lady to talk with. I will miss her friendship.

I loved seeing Sister Mickey’s smiling face every Sunday, always ready to greet me with a kiss! She was truly precious to me! Just yesterday I saw a lady at Walmart and from behind it reminded me of her and I wished it was so I could get one more hug and kiss! Can’t wait to dance before Jesus with you my sweet friend! I’ll always remember you. ❤️
