Mimi was a most gracious, kind and thoughtful person. Barbara and I always enjoyed her sense of humor and ability to find something positive in any situation. Mimi was always busy but, found time for friendly conversation and helpful advice. Our lunch outings and holiday celebrations were great pleasures. Mimi will be sorely missed.

Mimi was a great person and a supportive fellow-writer. She bought the first copy of my first novel. I always enjoyed seeing Mimi and Ty and MWA-MA dinners and had great times with them down in Florida at Sleuthfest. My deepest sympathies to Ty and the rest of Mimi's family.

I first met Mimi years ago through my furniture painting business. Imagine my surprise to meet her again in my class at the Writer's Center. We attended several events together,and I particularly enjoyed one trip we made to the Metropolitan Museum of Art with Ty when we were up there for the Edgars.

I remember Mimi as always sweet, always kind, a fine writer, and a free spirit. How sad to think we won't meet again.

My deepest sympathy to Ty and the family, who I know were so close to her heart.

Mimi was always sweet natured, always kind, always a free spirit, and a fine writer. I am so very sad to know we won't meet again.

Dear Tandler Family,
I am shocked and saddened by the terrible news. I knew Mimi through Newcomers. We did not share many activities, but I did stop fairly regularly at the Palladium for Thursday afternoon coffee. What bonds me to Mimi is that we share the same first name, although I spell mine Mimie. That e at the end has caused me much grief. I have known only one other Mimi, my God-daughter, so when I met your Mimi, it was strange to hear MY name said. That NEVER happens. Therefore I felt a connection that your Mimi probably didn't know about. I didn't tell her, which I regret. I recently found out that I am to be a grandmother. I plan to be Mimi ,with an e or not, to my granddaughter. Mimi will always be special to me.
Please accept my sincerest condolences,
Mimie Marum

Aunt Mimi. I still can't believe you are gone and I hate the fact that i didn't get to come visit you in June when my mom came up. You were an amazing person and i'm blessed to have your namesake. I love you very much and i know that you will be our Angel looking out for us. Give Winkie a big kiss for me!

To the Tandler Family,
Our deepest sympathy to all of you and please know our thoughts and prayers are with you all. Bill spoke about Ty and Mimi with great admiration and was always so excited prior to a visit with them. I am sure Mimi and Bill will meet in heaven and have some great conversations.
