"Happy Mother's Day Mom. Missing you. I was reminded of the love and kindness you brought into this world when we got together as family today for Mother's Day. Your spirit clearly lives on in the lives of your sons & their families. We all had a great time this year at Micheal & Lauren's house on a beautiful spring day watching the cousins play in the yard while we laughed, ate good food and enjoyed each other's company. Love you Mom!"

"Dearest Mickey,  Well it's finally happened I'm back in St. Louis but it's bittersweet.  Our plan for us all to be together again did not work out - I can't believe I'm here and you're not.  I miss you so!  This was not the plan!!  I think of you all the time, miss you everytime we girls get together.  Knowing you're there in spirit helps!  You were the 'best' part of our little group.  I hope you're with Skippy and smiling down at us!  Love you always, Jackie"

"Mickey will be greatly missed. I know my mom won't know what to do without her. All of us kids of these best friends were lucky to learn from our mom's what real friendship means. Mickey always went out of her way to make everyone feel special. Growing up as the only girl amongst many, many boys Mickey always made sure I got extra attention. One memory (amongst many) I'll never forget is her taking me on a special trip to the ice cream parlor outside of Lost Valley Lake resort. I'll always remember her fondly."

"Your Mother will be sorely missed.  We were child hood friends.  My mother is Ruth Henry and Elizabeth Smallwood was her BFF.  I remember so many happy times at her parents house.  I was very saddened when my mother called me and told me of her passing.  I live in California now and due to the weather and my Mother's medical conditions she won't be able to attend the funeral, but I'm sure we both would if we could.  I will always remember your Mother with fondness and be grateful for the times she and "Aunt Donna" would spend with my mother even when they didn't have to.  Thank your family for everything.  May you live on in Peace and Happiness knowing you were part of a truly blessed family."

"I knew when my sister married Ken, I knew I was getting a wonderful brother-in-law.  I didn't know I would get to enjoy so much time with his great family, too.  Mickey has always made us feel so welcome at Pagel events.  I remember one celebration our 3-year-old daughter heard that Mickey had arrived.  She went searching around the house for Mickey Mouse.  When reminded that Mickey is her cousins' grandmother, she was excited that "Mickey Mouse is their grandma!"  This was followed by disappointment that a lady could have the same name.  Mickey just went with the flow, gracious as usual.  The two had a sweet conversation about Disney characters, especially princesses.  We will miss you, Mickey."

"A truly beautiful woman who endured way too much for one person and faced it all with extraordinary courage!  You have now found peace, and we can hear the angels and see the sky sparkling with diamonds. (from Anton Chekhov).  God bless you and your family!"

"Our dearest Mickey – what an amazing woman of strength you have been from the time you were a little girl until your death.  You  selflessly shared your light and spirit with all of us.  I was so blessed to have you in my life and learned so much from you in facing difficult situations with fortitude and courage.  Although you have been taken from us way too  prematurely you will forever be in our hearts and I will strive to keep your spirit alive in all we do whether it is a Disney trip, a “green dinner” on St. Pat’s, cousins dinner, and sharing memories with your adored grandchildren.  Love you forever and for always!!"
