To the family, my deepest condolences for your loss. Mildred was someone I've known my entire life. Some of my best childhood memories were times spent with Mildred & Bob and their family. After life sent us to different parts of the world, birthdays and Christmas never passed without a card and a little note from Mildred. She was a true friend to my mother, and I will never forget her warmth and many kindnesses to me. Rest in peace, dear lady.
