Cousin Mary,  Katreena,  Rhonda  and Emmitt.
What a woman and what a life! I find solace in knowing that Mildred LITERALLY LIVED until the moment that she died, caring for all that concerned her. She and I had many conversations over the last few months and I can truly say "well done Mildred."  I know that you have years of rich memories with Mildred that will console you at this time and long into the future; she treasured her family, especially her children and grandchildren. I like the way that she laughed at the stories of her life; both the rewarding and challenging and the mystery of what makes us tick as human beings. She leaves a legacy of wit, independence and unparalleled determination.

Mildred is at home and at peace.
God bless and keep you.
Frances Baldwin
