Dear Mike,Brianna and family…

I only came into Mindy’s life a couple of years ago. I met her through my sister Doris Susko.I met the beautiful person that Doris said she was. I also met her sweet daughter Brianna, and her husband Mike. The whole family seemed perfect to me, until I found out Mindy had cancer. I cried over that many times. To think Mike and Brianna would be left alone and Mindy had to die at such a young age.There are many things that Mindy will miss in Briannas’ life as she grows older! You see I am on the other side of this terrible situation. I lost my young daughter Kimberly to a tragic car accident so I’m missing alot of her young years!! I want you all to know, it will get better as years go by,but the pain never goes away. Mindy is now in a better place,she is watching from above and loving all of her family.She is no longer sufering,she is rejoicing with her heavenly father.Mike & Brianna, she is with you both, when you feel the wind on your face or the surf on your feet, you will know she is there. I hope you all will be able to go on with life as she would want you too! With warm hands and a warm heart, I am thinking of you! Liz Pettrey

This info was shared with me, so I looked it up. We were the best of friends when we were younger. We grew up in the same neighborhood and were just close friends; none of the other b.s. She was a strong, great person, even though she had some difficult times in her young life. I was one of the first to try to comfort her after her accident. We’ve all grown up and apart in our adult lives, and I just lost touch with her. She willl be greatly missed. I wish all of her family the best. Kathy and Kellie say I hello and that I’m so sorry.
