Condolences left for Aimee Midkiff:

    To the family of Aimee Midkiff I send my deepest condolences. When I was young Aimee was like a second mother to me. I was always welcomed to her house to play with Pat and Phyllis. My parents didn't attend church, but Aimee invited me to attend State Street Methodist with her fsmily and that is the greatest gift she could have given me. I learned Bible verses and songs about Jesus that have stayed with me all my life. I am a member of Grace Methodist Church and it's because of Aimee. I know she is with God, and I do not feel sad because she is now an angel looking after me, and I will see her again. Thank you, Aimee.
