My dearest Ms. Mickey is now home sweet home.
She was my confidant, other Mother, friend and dear neighbor for 20 years.
During my chemotherapy for blood cancer, EVERY time I would be brought home, Ms. Mickey would be on her front porch waiting for me. She would always shout out to me, to come get a bag of food she had sacked up, for the kids and me:)
We had our up's and down's, as most neighbors do, but in the last 8 years, We patched things up, and were back to the daughter/mom relationship we had built many years before. Praise God!!!
One precious story to be shared:
About 6 years ago, my mom was dropping my daughter off. Ms. Mickey said to my mom, "You are so beautiful, what is your age?" My mom replied, "Well Miss I am 63. And what is your age?"
Straight face and as matter of factually, Ms. Mickey replied, " I am 60 AND NOT A DAY OVER!"
I have so many fond, wonderful stories and memories of my dear neighbor!
I have shed many many tears since I learned of Ms. Mickey going Home. I know she is healthier and happier, but selfishly REALLY MISS HER HAPPY FACE just sitting on her front porch, ready to talk and share her fun stories with me:)
MY CHILDREN AND I ARE BETTER PEOPLE IN THIS WORLD, BECAUSE WE HAD YOU IN OUR LIVES:)
We Love You Forever Ms. Mickey!
