Dear Irene & Family

Regret hearing of your loss. I had stopped to visit her in Good Shepherd several times, but it seemed to upset her & ceased attempts. She was a sweetheart & will be missed. I won’t be able to attend services as, I’m in Hawaii @ present. Please convey my condolences to all the family. God bless you & be with you.

Love,

Charlotte

So sorry for your loss. Mildred was always so much fun to be around. When we visited my grandmother Janet Wilson, Mildred always treated me like family. I will always remember her hugs and her laugh. May God comfort you during this time. You are in my thoughts and prayers!

To Mike Denning – I am very sorry to hear of your grandmother’s passing. Grandmother’s hold such a special part of all our lives and our memories. At this season, more than any other, the gift and the promises of Easter Sunday resonate. I hope that this season brings your family peace, knowing that you will one day be together again.
