What a precious lady. It was a blessing and an honor to know her. I love thinking back on the days of the Mt Hope picnic and The Mickley reunion at the Mt Hope church pavilion. what good times, good people and good food. Chicken corn soup and black raspberry ice cream. Good times. God be with you in these times. Take care of you.
