Marie, Karen & family I was deeply sadden to learn of Miggy’s death. I immediately thought of all the times I sat in your mom’s kitchen sharing coffee, meatballs and stories Somedays we laughed till we cried, other days we cried because of the death of our loved ones. This past year we shared phone calls and memories I will miss her and her sense of humor relating stories of your dad & Ron at Wilson foods. May she rest in peace she does so deserve to. My love to you girls and family.

Condolence from Kevin M. Donnelly on July 4th, 2021 3:41 am

Marie, there’s an old Irish song that says; You can’t buy the sunlight at twilight, you can’t buy the moonlight at dawn. You can’t buy your youth when you’re growing old, or your life when the heartbeat is gone. You can’t buy your way into heaven though you may possess wealth untold and you can’t buy another if you lose your mother if you had all the world and it’s gold! From your sight, to God’s arms, may she rest in peace.

Condolence from June Overdorf on July 4th, 2021 5:15 am

Marie, Karen & Family,
We were so sad to hear of your Mom’s passing. We loved her and will miss her. There are so many stories to share- probably the best was her “lucky” week- she hit big at the casino and hit a number- “everything I touch turns to gold” she told our daughter- she was such an amazing lady. Our love to you all!
Jen, Bill & Family
