    Hal, We are so sorry of the lost of your mother. Both of us know the lost you are feeling. Aunt Mickey was a special lady that we loved dearly. We enjoyed our visit with her last week. She was alert, funny, and laughing. We are so glad we got to hug & kiss her one more time. Love Alex & Melinda
