I wasn't able to know Mrs. Miller long but it didn't take long to see how her and Mr. Miller loved the Lord and loved sharing stories of serving the Lord together all these years. My family and I will cherish all the visits made❤

Mildred was more than a sister-in-law, she told me herself after my twin sister passed away last Oct. 15th that we are sisters now. Growing up we were best friends, and then she started dating my brother, Richard, and when they got married, we became family. Richard and Mildred's marriage of 55 yrs. was the perfect example of a Godly marriage. Everyone who knew Mildred can take comfort in the good memories of her, and of seeing her again one day in Heaven if you are a Christian. I especially have many good memories of the last 6 or more months of being with Mildred one on one and will cherish those memories as long as I live. I love her dearly. Richard, you have all my love and will stay in my prayers. Brenda
