Darrell, Teresa & family,
Please know you are all in my thoughts and prayers. Millie was a very dear and sweet lady and I think the world of her. I have known her all of my life. She helped me in so many way growing up. I spent many a night in the kitchen of the old Masonic/Eastern Star lodge waiting on my mama while they would have the Eastern Star meetings. Millie and your dad Carlton were great people. They helped me go to Camp Rainbow!
Love & prayers to you all!!
