Mildred was a gracious, kind and very loving lady. She deeply loved her daughter Mandy and her boys--Aaron and Carson. We shared many conversations about her love for Mandy and her family at various events we attended--Thanksgiving at my home, Aaron's baseball games, and many more. She was honest and wanted to give to all she loved. Some of her wishes may have been circumvented, but the intent to love and give was always there. I hope she rests in peace even though many things she wanted were never realized.

I haven't seen my Great-Aunt Mildred for almost thirty years, but I still remember her being a kind and caring lady. I know she'll be missed! Please know the thoughts and prayers of my family are with all of you now.
