    Mickey was not my sister in law, she was my sister. From the moment I met her, i loved her. My brother loved her, therefore I loved her. Why wouldn't I? She was the kindest, sweetest and most accepting person. She wouldn't take any crap from anyone either, which made me love her more. Mickey and Scott shared a deep and lasting love. She made him the happiest man and he idolized her. A wonderful sister, wife, Mother, Grandmother and friend. She will be missed by all who were lucky enough to know and love her. Peace to you sister, you deserve it❤❤

    Scott and his family were so impactful in my life as a high school student. Howard and Shirley were my "Cleavers" and I, as Eddie Haskel, would often drop in just to hangout. My thoughts and prayers go out to Scott and his family.
