As nephew of Mildred, let it be known that she was truly loved and admired by her family. We always looked forward to her visits in Georgia and Florida. She would light up the house with fun and laughter. We regret we were not able to visit with her as we desired but our phone conversations were many and genuine. Our prayer is that she got to know,The Lord Jesus, in the pardon of her sin, the same as we all must do. Our absence from the services is no small matter in our hearts but the love of family will take us through. Many thanks to all who made themselves her extended family. May God bless you all. Special thanks to Ms. Peaton.
