My condolences to all the family. She was always such a warm and wonderful person. I can remember running into her when she was out with Great Grandma Ratzer at Jack Horner's for a Sunday breakfast and thinking that I hoped to always have the kind of relationship with my mother that she did with hers. Also remember seeing how she looked at Uncle Bob (in love always), and the joy that was evident in her face whenever she was around her children or grandchildren. She will be missed.

So sorry for your loss.

My whole family appreciated this wonderful servant of God, who showed us Christ's love every Sunday at North Haven. We sang, laughed, and learned; and I came to know Jesus having been given my first Bible in her Sunday School. I express my sympathy on behalf of all of us who still speak fondly of her.

Bob and Family, I am so sorry to hear of Mig's passing. During my lifetime there have been many memories made with your whole family. All of these memories come from my time at North Haven Covenant church. Mig always had a wonderful smile and only kind words to say to everyone. God Bless all of you at this time.
