Millie was always a joy to be around. I will forever remember the memories of visiting as a young child. No matter what day or time we came to visit, she always had my favorite sweet tea freshly made in the fridge. Many times we sat on the back porch and sorted through vegetables we picked from their garden. Always gone too soon, but forever in a better place. We love you!
