Mildred will be so missed! I remember the first time I was ever in her home - I was a 15-year-old and was traveling with the Capps family.
They were so excited about visiting Mildred and Bob, because they loved them so much and enjoyed being in their home. I could see why.
She was a warm and loving Christian lady who made everyone feel right at home. I came to love her too! I am thankful for her life and legacy, for her faith and for her eternal destination. We can rejoice that she is with Jesus!
