What a beautiful soul! Truly, Mrs. Mills leaves a legacy of grace, strength, beauty, wisdom, honesty, and courage. Always exuberating dignity as she moved through the aging process. I was blessed to know her, even from a distance and through my mother, one of her dear friends, Nancy Coleman. She will be missed by many. Praying for her son, Malcolm, family, and church family, Zion United Methodist Church in Ocala.

Aunt Honey as I knew and loved her she was a delightful woman with a captivating smile in her heart and on her face. She openly shared her love of God. She was a loving mother to her son Malcom and to her family, she fiercely loved her friends she supported with kindness. She loved her tennis and we’d watch it together. I’ll miss Aunt Honey but I’ll meet her one day on the other side of Glory . Rest in paradise.Eternally grateful😇 Beth Satchell and family
