    To my best friend. My partner in crime and fun, the person who I loved to dance with, confide in. How will I survive without your humor and quick wit? You were my sister from another mother. You were always there when I had drama in my life and I hope I was there for your drama. Keep dancing in heaven and I’ll see u on the flip side.


  2. It’s me again, keep dancing like no one’s watching…I love u then, now, and forever bff.

    My condolences to all the Griffith family. We sure had a lot of fun times together growing up during the 1960’s-1970’s. Micky was always so kind to me and I will always remember that smile, that same Griffith Smile, you all have. Say Hi to your dad mom & Jamie for me and I will see you when I get there to Heaven too!

    Mickey and I shared a love for dancing. She was my smoking buddy. We spent time talking about our lives and had many things in common. She was a loving, giving person and will forever remain in my heart. Her spirit will always be with you.


  6. I Will love and miss you so much. Rest easy sweetheart…

    Sarah and Family
    You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

    To My #1 Big Sister,
    I didn’t know that day would be our last; that I’d have to say goodbye so fast.
    Prayin’ you’d just walk back through that door n tell me that I was only dreamin’ but it’s not my place to question, Only God knows why.
    I’m so jealous of the angels.
    I’ll hold you as close as I can, until the day I see your face again. But until then God must need another angel
    Until we all meet again, R.I.P. Mick and I’ll see you on the other side. I LOVE YOU MORE THAN YOU COULD EVER IMAGINE AND I AM LOST WITHOUT US Kel

    I only met Mickey a couple of times, but I am good friends with ber daughter Sarah and also Tony. These are two of the most honest and loving people I have met in Ohio and to me that speaks volumes about the kind of mother they had. I will continue praying for the Perl (Griffith) family, that they may be at peace. Love to all


  15. Micky, you’re my BESTEST friend since we were 8 years old. We schmeedled and schmoogled all over Mentor as girls. And again as women in the rooms of AA. I love you and I’ll miss you 4ever!!
