Miss Millie was in my Sunday School class. Will miss her. Loved how smart and capable she was, how compassionate she was, how involved in everything she was.. she was extraordinary. My condolences to the family on this devastating loss. This news made me so sad. Glad she is in heaven now.

Please know caring thoughts are with you during this most difficult time. So sorry for the loss of one so dear. May your beautiful memories of Millie brighten your day and bring a smile to your face. The Bible refers to 'death' as our enemy. Draw comfort from God's promise that soon death will no longer exist. 1 Corinthians 15:26 assures us, "Death Is To Be Brought To Nothing." With my deepest condolences.
