I am so sorry to hear of Mindy’s passing. I worked with her at Kings back in 1985. We would go through the restaurant singing the Tigger song. The most wonderful things about Tigger’s......
She was a beautiful inside and out. I lift you all up in prayer.

My heart ❤️ is broken to think that you are gone. We grew up together and our classmates used to think we were sister or at least cousins. We were not at but you always made me feel apart like we were. There are many memories on the school bus and in the classroom. I was so excited to see you at our recent class reunion. It had been such a long time since we had seen each other. It was like no time had lapsed. I am sure you and l will meet again and there will be no time lapse. Rest for now my friend.

Greg and Boys, It truly saddened my heart when I heard that Mindy had passed. She was one awesome lady as you have heard I'm sure by so many. If only we could of seen her face and her beautiful smile as Heavenly Father said to her, Welcome home good and faithful servant, your work on earth is completed. And how the Angels prepared for her celebration, it must of been so beautiful. No more pain and her now being in perfect form. It won't be easy as the days slowly pass but in time you all will gain a better understanding of strength and endurance to move forward always knowing she is near each of you. A brush on your cheek, a whisper in the wind or a still small voice in your ear will let ...you know she is beside you, watching over you... I love the three of you and know if there is anything you need please do not hesitate to call me or reach me on facebook. Love your friend Pam TiddRead more

I won’t be able to attend the service but wanted to share that it was so fun to have Mindy in my childhood memories of coming into King’s, being a good friend to my Mom, always giving my Dad a hard time which he thought was funny, and she was at my baby shower with all the King’s ladies, which was really special for me. Mindy told me once in the back of King’s that she fell in love with Greg because he could come up with witty comments right back at her and that will forever be my favorite Mindy moment. Sending lots of love to her family.

Jock, you and Christine will always have those great years of her and I’m sure Christine told her of when I was riding one of the horses and got tossed!!! I remember her and your dad and the dandelion wine!!!! May god bless you all and I will keep you in my thoughts!
