Jan, Bobbie, Brodie, and Bjorn--deepest condolences and loving sympathy on the loss of Mimi. My memories of her are from her childhood, the flight to Germany, and our shared adoption stories. There are no words to make the pain and sorrow vanish and I pray that you will find solace in the love she had for each of you and the love you have for her children. With love and prayers, Janice Kitzler

Mimi was one of the greatest friends I've ever had. She was the most happy and funniest person I have ever known. I have so many great memories with her, she will never be forgotten. No matter how bad my day was or how sad I was Mimi could always make me smile and laugh. Mimi will always be loved and never forgotten.
