    I'm so sorry for your families loss. The Matriarch of the family. I have so many fond memories of Mildred. How she loved QVC! Haha, I still has a few pieces of hers that I cherish. There is no greater ending to her life than that of being with Jesus and the Lord in the Heavens above. My prayer for you all is that God comfort you in your time of loss. Love you all dearly.

    Oh my , I can just see Mom and Milly laughing and talking. What great joys when two cousins leave this old world so close together and both now having clear minds and no pain. I can see them both with their beautiful smiles having the best time ever. Always will have sweet memories of my childhood with Millie and her family. Prayers are lifted. Love Ida
