    I extend my heartfelt sympathy to you on the transition of “Mickey”. I had the pleasure I meeting her during my volunteer time at PEP. The last time I saw her was at the bake sale held last year. I remember her wonderful, warm smile. May she rest in eternal peace.

    I only knew you for a very short time , I met you at pep
    Where you were severing your amazing bake goods
    And that’s when you became one of favorite people,
    You were warm , gentle and so respectful of everyone,
    I was blessed to know you , you will be missed by all,
    But God needed another angel , Sleep in peace

    Ms. Mickey, Your smile will always be vivid in my mind. In John 5:28 Jesus said, “Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out”. With that promise in mind, I look forward to seeing your smile when his promise is accomplished. For now rest Ms. Mickey and see you later.
    My sincerest condolences to the family and may Jehovah strengthen you.
    Ileana Caraballo PS 106.

    Mom, Giancarlo said he needed you and it’s ok. It’s ok for me to hurt, it’s ok for me to cry, your seeds of knowledge have given me wisdom that will not be wasted.

    My aunt Mickey was the best. We spent hours on the phone talking and sharing stories. My heart is broken for my uncle and cousin. RIH now with our loved ones. Until we meet again. Love you all, Rosalia

    My heart is heavy. Mickey was an amazing person. A true friend. I will miss her laugh and jokes. She was a pleasure to be around. I had the pleasure of enjoying the outings we went on with a few other friends and enjoyed the celebrations we would have for birthdays at the job. She loved her some Luther Vandross music. While many new her much longer than I, I am delighted that I had the time to establish a friendship with her. Will miss that banana pudding and pistachio cake. But most of all I will Miss You Mickey Mick.
    My condolences to Alfredo, Marcello and the entire family.
    Heaven you have received an amazing ANGEL!!!
    RIP
