Mrs Klein was a special lady. She was always quick to laugh and joke and we feel blessed to have had her as a neighbor. The stellar care her children gave her in her last few years spoke of the wonderful loving mother she was to her children. She has left an indelible mark in our hearts.

Bobbi and family, I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your dear sweet mother. I’ll always remember her being one of several fine ladies who bandaged up my dad when he would fall or tear his skin somehow. I think he appreciated the company just as much if not more than the bandages. Such a loving and caring soul. God bless.

Bobbi, Dale and family, My prayers and thoughts are with you all during this sad time. Mickey was a special soul, loved by all!! What a blessing she was to her family. I can still see her coming to my exercise class at the Y…all smiles. She always made my day. “Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn.” Romans 12:15

It was with much sadness that I learned of Mickey’s passing. All of us who knew her well, though, will have wonderful memories of this special lady with a quick wit and warm smile that drew people to her. Always “young at heart,” Mickey seemed happiest in the company of her children and grandchildren, and she always participated eagerly in activities with her friends and loved ones. Her presence will be greatly missed, but her legacy of love will live on.
