  1. So sorry for your loss. Mary would come over on her bike almost every day. She definitely was a sweetheart and a great friend. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

  2. “”Mom” Miholer will always be in my heart, we have shared so many wonderful happy and sad times together. I am so sorry I live so far away because for the past ten years I did not get to see her like I would have. My prayers go to Lyle and Bill and their families during the loss of their mother, the best of the best. “Mom”, I will never forget all the good advice you gave me, your smile and laughter, and all the times we would sit in your front porch together as well as all the rides I would take you on in the car. Rest in Peace Mom, I know you are with “Dad” now in heaven.

    Judy Gilchrist-Mohney
