I had the pleasure of knowing Mildred (Milly to me) for as long as I have known her son, Jarrett; which is to say all of my life minus 6 years. Looking back throughout those years, and touching on the brief but precious memories I had interacting with her, there are a few things I notice. First, I cannot recall a time I ever heard a cross word about someone else escape her lips, though she may have certainly thought it. I cannot recall a time at all when I didn't see her smiling with her rounded cheeks a slight shade of red. I never saw her react to a situation without laughter, no matter what the situation might have been. Not once did I ever see malice, anger or venom in her eyes, rather a sparkle of grace, love and tenderness. These best qualities passed to her son, Jarrett, who has always done his finest to pass them on to me; somewhat making Milly a part of me too. For which I am thankful. I think the most apparent gift I perhaps gleaned from her was to laugh at what you think is funny even if you are the only one...especially if you are the only one. She took life as it came, from my perspective, and will most likely do the same in her After Life, with a stride, a smile and an undying and unforgettable giggle.

Millie and her son, Jarrett and their family have been a wonderful part of our family. We always enjoyed hanging out with her whenever we gathered for special occasions. She had such a wit and a wonderful sense of humor...she always kept us laughing. She will be dearly missed.
