John, Kenny, Jeff, and Family
Did not know Aunt Millie was in declining health. Though she was doing ok. Sorry to hear that she had passed away. I remember all the fun times we use to have at family reunions at Mother's house in Charlotte. Love, laughter, good food, but most of all just being together. Catching up on what was going on in our lives. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this sad time.

John, Kenny, Jeff, and family,
We are so sorry to hear of Aunt Millie's death. Our hearts and love are with you. I remember our Hollifield Family Reunions at mom's house in Coulwood. The good food, the family stories, the laughter and love, Aunt Millie sitting in the swing, and her dry wit! I also remember her smile and that funny little look she could give you. Please know that you all are in our thoughts and prayers during this sad and difficult time. Sending love and our deepest sympathy.

John, Jeff, and Kenny and your families I was so very sorry to hear about Aunt Millie; however I understand from mom that she had been in pain for a while. I hate that for her and you as she was always such a fireball of energy. I have great memories of our trips to the beach and seeing her in Charlotte at the family gatherings. Kay, Lorraine and I had planned to visit with her and John once I retired, a bucket list per se for us. I know you will all miss her so much, and I am so sorry for this loss to your family. Love and hugs from the Gamble family.
