    Words cannot be spoken as to what you have been through this past week. I am so sorry for the loss of Micki, and your mom. She was a fun loving person with a dynamic personality, and I am so glad that I had an opportunity to get to know her better. I learned many things during our vacations together, but more than anything, I know how proud she was of her family and how much she loved each of you. Praying for all of you the strength to get through this difficult time, and know that the deep pain will eventually fade, and there will be brighter days ahead.

    I always remember Micki as such a cool girl being a little older than me. I remember her sisters Sandra and Susan as they were in my brothers class in Clinton Central thinking how fun and crazy that must have been growing up, those sisters.

    I have been away from Michigantown for several years now but the memories of your childhood are strong and sweet.

    So sorry to the Crenshaw and Raney families. I know you have great memories.
