When I think of aunt Mildred, I think sweet and gentle spirit. She was always so pleasant and patient. Even though I didn’t see her a lot , I always felt a sense of caring from her. I know this is a bittersweet time for you and my thoughts and prayers are with you She was loved by many and leaves warm thoughts of her presence. She now has peace with her Father in heaven. Love to you both. Sandra Moye
