    Millie was one of 4 of us Wilson cousins who were the same age and who grew up as our Grandmother Honey’s quads. We all graduated from high school the same summer and we were all in Millie and Emmet’s wedding. Our lives took different paths for many years but any time we got together it was as if we saw each other last week. Millie’s passing lives a big hole in my heart. My love goes out to all her family.

    Millie was an awesome teacher of cake decorating. I had taken many classes from her and learned so very much. So sorry I had lost touch of her for many years. She definitely was a lady of faith and loved our Lord completely. A wonderful and sweet lady..

    To the Family. Sorry for your loss. Our Heavenly Father well knows the pain we suffer when we lose a loved one in death and he cares. Exodus 3:7; 1st Peter 3:7
