As Missy’s mom, I think back to January 6, 1971 when I met my baby girl, my friend, my partner, & lifelong treasure. I’ve seen 50 years of amazement, watching her turn struggles into accomplishments.
She is a girl to be admired for all of the lives she’s touched. She has an uncanny way of sensing others needs and acting on it. Her love of animals is profound. Her simple ways of cheering people is a very special quality. Her artwork, paintings, pottery, and cooking have been gifted to many.
Disabled? Yes, but not her tender heart and giving soul. She has truly blessed my life as she has so many. She is my “hero.”
Donations to the Connecticut Humane Society, 701 Russell Rd. Newington, CT 06111, would be something that she would have appreciated.
A celebration of Missy’s life will be held at the convenience of the family. Plantsville Funeral Home has been entrusted with handling the arrangements. For online condolences, please visit www.plantsvillefuneralhome.com.
