Dear Barbara and Family:
I have fond memories of your precious mother from our Home Economics class at Mission High School and our slumber parties at your home. May God comfort you during this difficult time and bless you with beautiful memories of your mother.

I have many happy memories of Mildred. She had so much energy and took pleasure in joining people in games; there was playing bridge, making a quilt with a group, making music in a church with glasses, but also making the best of it : whem she could not join in sports outside on a sportsfield she made do with a match with cherrypitts in a pillow inside and she had a lot of fun wih it too. I am very sorry she is gone and I wish her family strenth. Nell Tijburg-Frye, Naarden., The Netherlands.

Dear Mildred will be greatly missed! She was like a big sister to my Dad and I am ever grateful for her friendship to Dad and to me. I still miss our rides to church together, chatting about kitties, the news, etc. I'm grateful to have learned of Mildred's family and I send them a big hug of love and thanks for sharing their Mildred with me. Eternal Life is Mildred's, so she continues her life of joy, graciousness, intelligence, and kindness -- with a lapfull of cat to pat, too!
