Dear Crutchley family,
I know you all will miss Millie so much. I attended , and was secretary at Davidsonville United Methodist Church for many years . Millie and Doug were two of the nicest , fun, people. Millie and I share a birthday and she sent me a birthday card for many years. I tried to remember to send her one but she was so much better at it than me. I am so sorry to have lost touch with Millie over the years. I know she is dearly loved by her family and friends. I count it a blessing to have known her for awhile. I know she will live forever in your hearts , not to mention through the many gifts you all must have that she made.
Such a talented lady. The angels have welcomed home a good one.
