I am saddened to hear of Mildred\'s passing. I have thought of both of you often. I especially remember going back to your house after church and enjoying brunch with you both. Your family is in my prayers.

Mildred made all of us welcome at her home when we planned our 40th Stonewall reunion. She was a sweet and beautiful lady. Our prayers are with the family.

My life has been made better for the short time Mildred touched my life at St Johns. Her gracious kindness was evident the way she lived her life.

I am sorry for your loss, your mother was very kind to me when I came over to your house after going to the pool, and when I attended youth group at St.John\'s with Anne.I remember watching \"Yellow Submarine\" at your house and we painted once,I called once about 7 years ago at the holidays,to talk to Anne, but, she had left, your dad remembered that I got paint on my overalls, I think she helped me get the paint out.(it was about 1974)
