We are so sorry for your loss. Millie always had so much loved for all her family and friends. She was always there with a kind word or a helping hand to so many who needed it.

I will always remember the church trips that we took with Bunny and Millie as a kids. She made everyone laugh ...I will always remember her laugh.......

May God's grace hold you all firm together until you once again embrace in heaven. Our deepest regrets on lossing your mom. She was loved by so many. Chris Gardner

To the Buskirk family,

My sympathies to your family. My mom has told me that when I was a baby, and I was collicky, millie would hear me crying and come over and hold me and I would instantly stop crying. My mom said she and your dad had a way like that. God grant you all the peace you need during this time. Until you meet with them again forever..

Charlene & family. I just want to tell you how much your Mom has meant to me through the years. In 1979, I was a new Head Start teacher & she mentored, encouraged, & supervised me for 7 years, We had some wild and crazy times at the Nemacolin Head Start, but one thing was evident-her love for children. She inspired me to stay in the Early Childhood field, where I am to this day. Whenever I would see her, I'd tell her how much I appreciated her and share a hug. I'm so sorry she has left you so soon. There is no doubt she is alive & well in the heavenly dimension with Bunny & your sister. She has left a blessed legacy of faith & love which will continue until you see her again. I pray that the Lord will comfort & strengthen you during this sad time.

Charlene, Bryan, Eric, and BK,
I just want to say that the years spent working with Ms. Millie were definately an experience for me. I could have written many books if I had written everything down that the children said and did. And Ms. Millie was a teacher and a mentor to me as well as those little ones. I know Ms. Millie is in heaven rejoicing with Bunny and Mikey (and Jesus!!!) and no longer suffering any pain!
Ms. Millie, you will be lovingly remembered and missed by family and friends as well!
Ms. Peggy
