Goodbye my wonderful, kind and loving Aunt Milda.

She was always so sweet to all of us and have never seen her speak in anger. She loved me and my siblings like she did her very own children. I always looked forward to seeing them when we got together. It was pure love and laughter and fun. May you Rest in God's Loving Arms Forever, along with Uncle Tom and the rest of our wonderful family, already in Heaven.
