Memory - My mom (Sue) told me was about Benita scolding one of the kids as she was cooking. Slang, that didn't mean the same thing my mom thought it did! Benita laughed and told her it didn't mean "milk". They both had a laugh over it.

Belated condolences from myself and son Brad. Deepest Sympathy to all of the family.
