May the Lord provide comfort and peace to all who loved “Miss Millie” For me, my Aunt was a walking book of family memories, a inspiration of strength, and wisdom, and could always make me smile. She loved her family dearly, and they loved her. I know she will be missed by so many here on earth, but welcomed by family in heaven. I love you Aunt Millie. Give my Mom, Dad, and Sister a hug for me when you see them in heaven.
