  1. I met Mindy when we both attended First General Baptist. We played volleyball while the guys had their game of basketball. We became friends. She got me into the Decatur Chorale. Her voice was amazing and I loved hearing her sing. She loved movies. Her kids were her heart and I remember lots of conversations of her and I talking about our situations. She always made funny faces when her picture would be taken. I wish I could be there to say goodbye to her and give you guys my condolences. She was a good friend and will be greatly missed.

  2. Mindy had an infectious personality and was an awesome addition to my show. She will truly be missed, my condolences to her family

  3. So sorry Jan for you and your family for your loss. She was way to young for this. I believe she is with our father and she will have no more pain in her perfect body. You will see her again in the twinkling of an eye. We are all her for a short time in this life but eternity is forever.

  4. She was my best friend all thru grade school and on. I will miss my sister. You touched so many lives. Sing with the angels my friend. O love you Mindy! I can't believe that your gone. But you are no longer in pain. Fly high! You are in a place where there is no more pain.

  5. I remember being with Mindy in the Decatur Chorale several years ago. She was always, always such fun to be with! I will miss her greatly. Sing your heart away in Jesus' choir, Mindy! I'll see you again someday in Heaven.

  6. Mindy was fun loving and intelligent with a great sense of humor. I enjoyed working with her during my years at Video Revue. I wish for peace for her family and children. She was taken far too soon ♡♡♡

  7. Mindy managed a Video Store and I one of the others. She was such a good person and treated her employees with great respect
    She is much too young to leave this Earth but I know she is in a much better place with our Lord. I'm glad I knew you Mindy.
