I’m so sorry for the loss of your mother and grandmother. She truly was a wonderful woman. Kind and caring and loving. She was one of a kind and I have many wonderful memories of being around her growing up and later years. Great conversations, late night sandwiches and many laughs. She will always be in my heart as “Aunt Millie”… prayers and loving thoughts to the whole family. God Bless.
