I am so sorry to hear of Millie's passing. To me, she will always be the best kindergarten teacher I ever had! I remember her like it was yesterday I was in her classroom! Such a joyful funny caring woman. She is still loved and will always be remembered!
To Julie, I am so sorry. Please believe me when I say I know how this feels. She was a grandma to me too! Running through the school after class ended, birthday parties at your house and teasing her about the trampoline! Nothing but great times we had with her. She will be missed by us. Thinking of you and your family. Love and miss you. She will be in great hands with my parents in heaven! ❤️
