Dear Ken, Cindy and Family:

Milly is a treasure of the heart and to lose her is like losing a piece of yourself. But the love that Milly brought all of you.......did not leave, for the essence of her soul lingers. It cannot escape your heart, for it has been there forever. Cling to the memories of her and let them find their way to heal you. The love and laughter, the joy in the togetherness you shared will make you stronger. You'll come to realize that your time together, no matter how long, was meant to be, and that you were blessed to have such a precious gift of love in your life in Milly. Keep your heart beating with the loving memories and trust your faith to guide you through. Know that though life moves on....the beauty of love stays behind to surround and embrace you. Milly has left you that to hold in your hearts forever. It was my privilege to have known such a wonderful woman for so many years. She is in my heart; so are you!

Dear Ken, Cindi, and Family,

I was a classmate of Sharon's at HRGS and remember your Mom from school and from several meetings we had after Sharon and I graduated.

She was a wonderful lady and will be missed.

I can empathize with Jim Kreipe and the loss of his Mom, Eleanor, in 2011, as my Mom's been gone since 1999. All three of our Mom's knew each well from the Holy Redeemer years.

Good luck to you all.

Sending my thoughts and prayers to the entire Baumbach family. I have fond memories of Milly while growing up in North Portland as a playmate of Bill and Jim.
