Dee & Diane, just learned of your mother's passing today. So sorry for your loss. Mildred loved being your mother! The photos you shared brought back so many fond memories of growing up around the kitchen table at your house. Your mother made the BEST coffee in town! Mildred was always ready to listen to her friends and their children and offer her support. She was a dear friend to my mother and to me through the years and we will always cherish her kindness and those memories. Family was everything to Mildred and she lived her life for each of you. What a blessing Mildred was to all of us fortunate enough
to share life with her! Love to you both.
