Millie was our dear next door neighbor for years in Keswick. We loved her and Jack very much. May they rest in the peace of the Lord forever.

Lisa, Charlie, Robbie , Grand kids and family, Wanda and I are so sorry to have heard about the loss of your Mom. Our thoughts and prayers go out to each of you. There are so many memories that I have that include each of you as well as Jack and Millie. Growing up I loved coming out to Keswick for family gatherings. It was just a couple of weeks ago that Colter "Tom Pepper"asked me if I had the recipe for Jack and Millie's famous salsa. Wow ...it is hard to believe that that Jack, Charlotte, John, June and now Millie have moved onto the next everlasting journey......preparing a way for each of us.
Our heart felt sympathy.
