  1. Gary, my heart goes out to you and Micki’s children, her mother and everyone else who adored this sweet woman! May you all find comfort in knowing that Micki is in heaven and can get back to her vibrant, creativeness that I believe she is known for! You will all meet up with her again one day! My heart is heavy and my prayers go out to you, dear family. You all were a joy to work with. Libba Heinisch, HFC…
