My heart goes out to your family. Millie was the heart and soul, the hub of the family spokes. She was fierce and gentle, noble and humble. She was a strong advocate and had the ability to cut through the b*******. I loved and admired her from afar. I am deeply sorry for your family's loss of your matriarch. Tough and sensitive, old school... her passing leaves a hole for so many. Revel in the memories of her strength and dedication to family.
