    My heart is sad for the great loss of Mildred.
    She is my first cousin and I adored her. She was so much fun to talk to and she loved telling her stories plus she could always make me laugh! I told her she missed her calling that she should have been a stand up comedian . She said no one would have come to listen to her! So thankful we spent time with her 2 years ago. It was a wonderful visit. She will be greatly missed !! Prayers for the family !

  7. When Mildred celebrated her 29th birthday for the 66th time, I asked her advice for us youngens. She responded, “Do good. If you miss the mark a few times, know you’re not alone. Get back up and try again the next day.”
