Millie was our neighbor on Era Street. She was so very kind to our family. We especially remember her awesome bread!!! Audrey and I would on occasion visit with her in her kitchen and hear stories of her youth. She would often share her mints with the kids and ask about their day as we visited on our porch. She inspired us to be our best. We will miss her physical presence but her memory will remain will us always. May God bring you peace at this time of loss.
