  1. The last time that I saw Mildred, I was returning a book that she had loaned to me written by her husband Bill’s Co-Pilot in WWII. She pointed out all the photos of Bill and the passages containing stories about him. Her peaceful countenance taught me that Love Endures. She was a true blessing to me and to our P.E.O. Sisterhood.

  2. I had the pleasure of meeting Mildred or “Millie” (as we liked to call her) as her nurse at Epworth Villa. I truly enjoyed the few years I was allowed to spend getting to know her and caring for her. She was always a joy and never hesitated to give me a hug and a smile. I feel blessed to have known her and she will be sorely missed. We love you Millie and miss you so very much.
