Dear Ronni, Ricki and family: Your mother was such a wonderful person. She became our very special friend twenty years ago when we bought Danny's Deli. Through the years we have heard many stories about her and your father. There are many fond memories of them that will forever remain in the hearts of those they came in contact with. We have lost a very special person but she will never be forgotten. You are in our hearts and prayers. Love,

Dear family, Please accept my sincere condolences. Mrs. Green was such a special woman and I will miss her. As I was a youngster during "Danny's" early years, she always greeted me with a smile (and sometimes a hug )when my family dined there. Years later she would help a newly minted lawyer "learn the ropes." Later still she would befriend my sons and their playmates on Stratford Rd. We need more Mimis. Mark Ailsworth

Dear Family of Mimi Green, She was a gracious and caring person with a smile that filled your heart with warmth and love. I was honored to be a guest at her 85th birthday celebration in June of 2008. She brought so much joy to her family, her friends, her professions and the organizations she served so diligently throughout the years. She was a community treasure.
Sincerely,

Dear Ronni, Ricki and family,
I was so sorry to hear of your mother's death. My brother Joel and I were talking about her recently, after Joel saw Ronni at their high school reunion. I have very fond memories of her. She was always so kind to me, and I spent many happy hours at your house and at Danny's Deli when we were growing up. I know your many memories of her will sustain you in your time of grief.

Dear Ronni & Ricki - I was so shocked the other day in the store when my co-worker told me that your mom had died. I was working with a customer and I could not stop crying. After I went to the back of the store and pulled myself together and came out the customer as if I was sick. I told her what happened and of course she was very sorry too. I can not even begin to tell your both how much I will miss your mother. Just about 1 month ago the phone rang and it was her asking for me to order her pearls for the girls. I still can not believe that she is gone. She will be missed greatly and she was a wonderful person. Love, Susan

I'm so very sorry to hear about the loss of your Mother. You were fortunate to have her for so many years. I enjoyed talking with her on my frequent trips to Danny's. My husband was a Newport News Police Officer and got to know your parents quite well. Our Deepest Sympathy to you and your family.

To Ricki and the entire Green family,
I can't remember a time when I didn't know who Mimi was - she was one of my mother's dear friends for as many years as I can remember. She was such a sweetheart, and so kind to everyone. My deepest sympathy to the family.
Sincerely,
Margie's daughter
