The Hollifield family will always remember the wonderful Mickey Hennessee. She was like a second mom to Jon from the time he and Kelly were in 3rd grade. So many great memories of Mickey and Earl. We are saddened by the loss of them here on Earth but thankful that they are reunited with no more pain. We love you all.
