    My Grandma was a beautiful lady here, and now her beauty shines through in heaven. She would have done anything she could for us and was always there for me. She experienced many losses in her 97 years, and although I miss her greatly, I am so glad she is now dancing in heaven with the many loved ones there. I love her dearly. Thank you for your condolences.

    Over the span of 28 yrs. Mildred played a major role in my life. She taught me so many things, even things like gardening, canning, and a true desire to know Jesus. Without her I would not be saved today. She was a very caring and loving person not only to me but also to my kids, who have such fond memories of camping and going to school in Florida etc. She will surely be missed but not forgotten. A beautiful lady entered heavens gate!!
