So sorry I could not be there with you and the family. Mil was the best and always made me feel as if I were one of her own. I'm sure she will be watching over all of us. Love you all.

Nancy, Doug, and Pat

So sorry to hear about Mil's passing. She was a special person. Whenever I have thought of her through the years, it has always been first of her sitting in her brown chair holding court over the parade of young people passing through her home. I will always be grateful to her for the time she allowed me to spend there. Take care and know that my thoughts are with you all.

Mildred lived next door when we first moved here 25 years ago. A wonderful neighbor. She helped us buy our first house! Fond memories and grateful to have known her. Wish we could be there today.
