Rest in peace Aunt Millie... I really only remember some parts of my childhood outside of immediate family. Aunt Millie would be one of those very nice memories. I will always remember her beautiful eyes and loving smile and in recent years was able to reconnect with her. I'm sure this angel will look over and protect her family.

Love Always

There is a saying that holds true, people may not always remember what you have said, but they will always remember how you made them feel. This was Millie!!! My grandmother always made everyone feel special and welcome. She had that unique way to connect with others and draw people in close to her heart. She was truly very special...an angel on earth! Love your heart, warmth, and your ability to keep our family close. Love you so much, Amy
