She will indeed live forever in my heart. I got to know Mikey when Brittany was getting married and just adored her. Len always spoke so highly of her and her husband and I am grateful I got the chance to know her. She was such a beautiful and loving person. I am sad that she is gone. My deepest sympathies and condolences go out to everyone in her very big and blessed family. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.
