Mili will continue to be an inspiration to me. I worked for her at Chisholm Hall UTSA in 1998 time frame. Words cannot express how much I will always value the guidance and friendship that she gave me. Unfortunately, I had not seen her in many years, but I have always carried with me the life lessons and insights that she gave me. She was a true gift from God. May you all find peace and hold your special memories of Mili close to your heart.

I was Mili's classmate at Stevenson High School and knew her to be a hard worker and a kind person. I was saddened to hear of her early departure. My sincere condolences to her loved ones. She was a special person.

I worked with Millie at CLV for years and truly enjoyed working with her. She was smart and determined and I knew we could always depend on her to get it done and do the right thing. I too share her love for our four legged friends and learned long ago if a doggie loves you then you must truly have a good heart to have earned their love and devotion.
Millie touched a lot of lives and she will be missed.
