We are so sorry to hear of Mickey’s passing. My son and daughter-in-law lived next door to him up until May of last year. He was so kind to them and even mowed their yard a few times. My husband Keith enjoyed visiting with him and taking cars. You will all be in our thoughts and prayers. God Bless.

Mickey was our neighbor for a few years, he was always willing to help us and made us feel so welcome. He would even mow our yard in the summers, and make us cheese balls at Christmas. I’m so sorry for your loss.
