Aunt Millie was one of the kindest people I know. She helped raise me and I am a better person because of her. Growing up we always looked forward to Aunt Mlilie and Uncle Mel coming to our house or going to theirs. Grew up playing with Rich and Dot. My heart is broken. I pray comfort for you all. I love you.
