Not sure what to say?

I dreamt last night that Mickey had passed on so, believing it to be only the stuff of the invisible world, I looked her up. Indeed, qned sadly, the dream had been accurate... Mickey was indeed an inspiration in life, in caring, in dedication. Her legacy as a fine human being lives on in all who were touched by her.

I just found out today that Mickey has died. We were special friends and shared many landmarks in her life. She had great vision of organizing and very strong commitments that she fulfilled. She was my model for activism.

Miss you auntie Mickey.
Rest in peace and my her soul will be bound to the bundle of life.

So many memories of so many meetings at the Stern's. but even a contentious left-wing meeting there always felt like Thanksgiving dinner - Al and Mickey were special that way. We were so fortunate to have their love and energy raising us up!

good-bye Mickey. a wonderful life. a wonderful woman. full of love.good-bye

Dear Rifka,
My most sincere condolences to you and your entire family.

Micky is a rare kind of person. Her passion for life and love, gives me hope. Because of Micky I have so much to be thankful for. May her kind words and strong will for what's right carry on. Truly an inspiration, a beautiful soul, an angel indeed.
Love forever, Elena

We are so saddened by the news of Mickey's passing. She was an inspiration to us on so many levels! We were lucky enough to be her neighbors across the street on Ludlow for 15 years. Needless to say Mickey grew the most amazing gardens year after year and we always had a front row seat! She was a great mother and wife too! We loved talking politics with her and Al. So many good memories! They were both such great role models! Rest in peace Mickey, you have earned it!
