I came to visit my friend Joyce and her husband Norm and got to meet Mildred. We all went out to dinner together. I am so glad I made the stop at that time and got a chance to meet her. My heart is breaking for Joyce and the loss I know she is bearing. I know also that every family member and friend of Mildred's is also grieving. You are all in my thoughts.

Sending love and deepest sympathy and condolences to all of you. Mildred was one of kindest, loving and most patient ladies I have ever had the chance to meet. She and my Mom were good friends. Mildred was truly one of the great ladies in my life. Again my deepest and most heartfelt sympathy to all of you.
