It was an honor to be able to take care of Millie. She loved her daughters very much. She was always a care giver even toward the end of her life. She taught us all so many things. My deepest condolences for your loss.

Millie was always an exceptional example of God's love on earth. I always looked up to her as I journeyed in my walk with the Lord. I pray her family will feel our Lord's presence as they continue their lives. Thanks Millie.
