I know I speak for all in my office when I say we were deeply saddened by the news of Mid’s passing and disappointed we were unable to attend the services held today. She will be sadly missed. I hope Paul, Joe & Sharon realize they are in our hearts, and we are here if they need us.

Please accept my sympathy for your recent loss. I had the opportunity to be introduced to Mid thru my father, Bill King, a resident at the “Inn.” Although I was acquainted with Mid only a short time, she was one of the warmest people I have ever met; always a kind word and hugging me whenever we would meet. Mid was a very special lady and will forever be missed. Your family will be in my thoughts and prayers in the days ahead.
