Mildred, you had a beautiful long life surrounded by awesome children and extended family. You were always surrounded by family and extended relatives. You were special to so many people and I enjoyed the times I spent with you. May God Bless You and keep you in His arms. Peace and calm to your family who loved you so much. You time here on earth seems to have been well spent in family and in service to others. Your love for the lord is wonderful.

I am so sorry for the loss of my Cousin Tina's mom Ms. Mildred had passed away. I will be keeping my Cousin Tina and all of her family in all of my prayers for the good ole Lord to hold my Cousin Tina and all of her family in his hands and bring comfort to all of them during this difficult time of their lives. I love Cousin Tina and Cousin Keith and all of their family very much.
