For as long as I can remember, Sister Millie has always been there. She was an active member of the Pentecostal Church of Jesus Christ, AKA Grant Street, in Stockton, CA for over 40 years. She worked as a Sunday School teacher, Sunday School secretary, lead song service and brought the Word in evening services, was a prayer warrior and also kind of like an "aunt" to my brother and me. My brother grew up with Jim and we all loved her. She was sweet and kind, mild-mannered, but firm in her belief in the Lord Jesus Christ. Those of us at Grant Street were sad to see her move to Texas, but understood her desire to be with her family. She has been deeply missed and, yet, we know that we shall see her again over yonder in heaven. I know that she was greated by the saints who went on before her at the gate, especially Sister Mona. Love you, miss you, will join you soon.

Milly had the sweetest smile and disposition. She welcomed me and my family into Keypoint Church a few years back and always greeted me and said hello. She was gentle, kind, and full of wisdom. I had the privilege of serving with her in the nursery on a couple Sunday mornings. We sat and talked while we cuddled the babies. I shared my story and she listened and encouraged me. We bonded in those moments and I loved her for it. She will be greatly missed.
