My prayers and sympathies go out to you all on the loss of your Mom. She was always my favorite Auntie. I loved visiting almost every Sunday as a little girl,and as a teen, spending a week or two every summer on the farm with my fav cuz..Denise. I especially loved her cookies, and sloppy joes and corn on the cob! Being a "city girl" I found it so refreshing to be on the farm with the cows, pigs, fresh air, and I always thought one day I would want to marry a farmer just like my Uncle Ed..:) I would imagine our parents are playing cards right now up in heaven, now that they are all together. :) I will always hold dear to my heart the beautiful memories I have of Uncle Ed and Aunt Millie and the farm...love you all!!

Memories

There is only one word to sum up Milly - FAMILY!! She was a woman who truly knew what mattered in life. She did not travel, or have a desire for worldly possessions. Instead she enjoyed time visiting with her family and friends, playing cards, gardening and most of all rocking numerous children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and those she babysat. She was famous for holding your hand tight and strong hugs. She had a great sense of humor and a knack for saying it like it was. Most who knew her called her Grandma Milly - I was lucky enough to have her as my grandmother! She will be missed by all who knew her and each of us are blessed to keep her in our hearts.

Dear Denise, Dan and family My sympathy to you at this time. I didn't know your Mom very well, but do remember her coming into Hallmark when I worked with you there. There is no one like our Mom. We keep the memories with us forever.

Memories

Grandma Millie gave us the most wonderful gift when she agreed to watch our daughters, Amanda and Brianna, from 1989 - 1995. She loved them like her own. I never once had to worry about them while they were in her care. Millie would be the first to tell you that she "raised" them for me and truthfully, I appreciate her more than words can describe. All of Heaven is rejoicing at the arrival of this most precious one. God bless your entire family during this difficult time.

Memories

Some of my fondest childhood memories are when "Grandma" Millie babysat me on weekdays when my mom worked. She always made the best treats and played with us. One of my favorite toys was a mom elephant and a baby elephant that I always had with me. I often think back to play dates I had when Jessica Keeley came to stay at her grandma's house and we played in the sandbox. Grandma Millie was very kind, loving and took great care of my sister and I. There is a permanent image of Grandma Millie in my mind: sitting at the kitchen table, smiling and wearing her blue sweater. I remember the sound of her laughter and how special she always made me feel. -Brianna Bartness
