    I just found out last night about your Mother. I wish I had know she was living in the same town as me. I am her first cousin. Her father Otto and my father Raymond were brothers. I would loved to have met her. I am coming to the funeral to meet her family. I am so sorry for the family and wish God's peace and comfort for you all. Love, Lana

    I wish that I could talk to say what I want to say, She was a wonderful woman that was always there for us right or wrong, She was my second mom back to me back in the day. I have not seen her in years but I always enjoyed the times I got to talk to her over the year, Love you Teenie. Garry

    I'm so very sorry I just learned of Georgia's whereabouts and passing today. She's my second cousin on her daddy's side from French Lick. She looks like a wonderful lady, wish I would have found her sooner. My cousins and I are hoping to be in touch with you, her family, and to share pictures and memories of the Mickler family. Please accept my sincerest sympathies in your loss and may God bless you, each and every one. Would love to hear from you. BellRock7@yahoo.com

    Melanie, I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your mother and also your father-law. Please know that they are among the Lord's band of angels. Won't it be great when we are all together again?
