Millie was so special to our family! Especially to our brother Bill, whom she "mothered" and "nursed" for many years. We stayed in contact with her, even after Bill's death in 2004. We still consider her part of our family. She was a very special lady and will be greatly missed. I am sure that she and Bill are in heaven right now, enjoying each other's company once again !!!

Ms. Millie was a wise and wonderful woman with a positive aspect on life. BILL, the therapy dog, so enjoyed hopping on her couch for cuddles and hugs. She taught us much about living during our visits and we thank her and her family for sharing in her life. We will forever remember her in our hearts...
Nena and BILL
