Millie was truly a remarkable person. She had love in her heart for all she met. From the time I met her in the late 50's, she made me feel like a sister-at-heart. She is already missed.

I am so sorry for your loss! Drew told me your grandmother was sick and I have been waiting to hear about the funeral because I wanted so badly to be there for you. I'm sorry I missed it. Your grandmother was a very special lady and will always be remembered by many as a caring, loving and Godly woman! God bless you and your family in this time of grief. I know personally how hard it is as my Dad passed away in 2005. It does get easier but we never forget!
