I met Mick in the late 90s and, from the very first moment we met, I felt welcomed with open arms! I adored her wit and humor and she always beamed when she smiled and laughed. She loved her family and friends and never knew a stranger!
A particularly fond memory is of having lunch with Mick and Suzanne at Taverna Agora...Irish wit and Greek food...glorious combination. Thank you.
My life is richer for having known Mick!
Fondly, Susan Taylor Altman

The Stitts purchased our home in Carnegie Park approximately 16 years ago.
We enjoyed them so much and remained friends over the years. Your folks were
exceptional people who completely adored their family. Mick called me after Frank died and I lost her phone number. My husband, Bill, died in 2015, but I speak for him
as appreciating the fine parents, grandparents, etc. you enjoyed. We surely enjoyed them as friends.

God's peace to family from Betty Kobs: I met Mick shortly after moving to Raleigh in Fall 2003. I was pushing a cart up & down aisles of pillows & knickknacks. . . Mick noticed I was wandering aimlessly so I told her, "Truth is, I'm missing all my Wisconsin friends!" "You need a Raleigh friend," she said. From then on, I was introduced as her "Tuesday Morning friend." She welcomed me into her life's high & low points. We lunched often at Lucky 32 & Carver's Creek. In my mind, the words "Tuesday Morning" are forever linked to Mick's vibrant smile, witty recollections & her macaroni & cheese! Goodbye, MM
