    I want to express my sincere condolences to all of you, Millie's family.
    Millie was a wonderful, kind person.    Her love of her family was apparent to all.   She spoke about her family with great passion and she loved you all dearly.   She was proud of her family and their accomplishments.   
    Mille's fudge was the best I have ever tasted!
    May she rest now in peace. 
    Sending you all hugs.
    With love,
    Brenda Woodrow (Sheila's Sister)

    Please accept our sincere sympathy regarding the loss of your Mother, Millie.
    She was a great person who told wonderful stories.  As Sharon's best friend, I learned this
    From staying over on the weekends.  Short stays, but powerful.  Family first.
    She made wonderful memories despite much adversity.
    She was the glue holding your family together so all could succeed, no matter what.
    I had a visit with her last June at Hillsdale Estates, On Golden Pond Area.  From year to year
    I could see definite changes in her memory, but I still remember her smile and gentleness.
    Rest in peace.
    With much love to the whole family,
