  1. Mildred was the sparkle that brought light to many. She was classy and sassy, intelligent and witty as well as beautiful. She was uniquely herself alone, with others or in a crowd. Her pride and inner strength with her faith carried her through the difficult battles of life. Mildred loved her family and her friends. She brought comfort and healing to many in her thirty years of nursing, a profession she proudly worked. She will remain my sister alive in my heart and in my memories as I know she is no longer in pain or suffering. May God be with her daughter, Cindy and her family to give them comfort, understanding and peace. Until we meet again, my beloved sister I bide you farewell for now! I love you!
