    Our condolences go out to Ed and the extended family. She was taken from us too soon, and at too young an age. Let’s remember her as the fun-loving child/adult she was.
    I remember wheeling her through the supermarket, together with her aunt
    (Anne Cavanaugh Keeler). She was a beautiful child, and everyone would stop us to say “hello.” It’s a most fond memory for me!
    Love to you all.

  22. Terri O'Conners Allum says:

    My thoughts and prayers are with Micki’s family. We were friends from infancy. Our parents were good friends with her parents Bill & Millie. Her Dad was my brother’s Godfather. and Micki was my oldest son, David Cassidy’s Godmother. We spent many years going away to Seabrook NH staying at the cottage her grandmother Cavanaugh owned. Her grandmother Waisnor lived upstairs at my grandmother’s house on her days off from working at St Thomas Rectory. We grew apart for many years, as our children were growing up, occassionally bumping into each other at events or when I was driving school bus in Wilmington. We reconnected on facebook for many, until she closed her account and I wondered how she was. I am so shocked that she is gone , I just found out, sorry for the late condolences and not attending her final respects.

    RIP Micki. Love you so much. ? Cheryl and Family
