Even though she wasn’t my aunt, I still called her Aunt Millie! Being the godmother to my best friend Sara, I often had the pleasure of being surrounded by the sounds of laughter whenever she was around! So sorry for the loss of someone so special. May she Rest In Peace.

Stephen, I am so sorry for your loss. Aunt Mildred was always a good listener and gave great advice especially when it came to children. When Jillian and Grace were little she recommended the best children's books. "Bernstein Bears" was one I remember. She was a beautiful person inside and out, and a great godmother to me. I will miss her smile and her calmness. Thinking of you and thanking you for the care you gave your mother.

What I will remember most about Mildred is her smile and her laughter—-it would light up a room! Wonderful daughter, sister, wife, mother, and teacher. What a gift she was to so many people.

Not a year goes by that we and friends at HBR in Destin don’t remember Millie, Art and Stephen. We all enjoyed the beach, hot dog days and eating at the Lighthouse. As in the past years, we will continue to miss this sweet lady. Prayers for Stephen.

She was my aunt, but only 10 years older than me. When we were very young, she would take the older Hardies (Keith, Peggy and Byrne) to the beach when we stayed at my grandmother's in Pass Christian. Always had a smile and a good word for everyone. She is the last of the Logans, and will be missed.
