Bill, Nick, Deborah & Peter – You have our prayers and deepest sympathy. Millie was my instant friend from the first time we met at Newman & Mackay when I was a teen. We shared a corny, crazy, sarcastic sense of humor and loved to laugh together. That never changed through 37 years. My family knew her best by the anniversary cards she never forgot to send! I loved her and I pray she’s smiling down on all of us. May you all be comforted by her unending love for you.
