    So you never met Millie!! Sorry to hear that. She was the best. I was lucky enough to be one of the many who made her acquaintance. You never felt like a stranger around Millie. Never!! One of a kind. Heaven will open it’s arms as she did to myself and others. I remember one day way back Mother Millie had invited me to her home for no particular reason. Although she probably won’t remember, Darlene walked in that day and said, “I saw your car out front. What are you doing here!!” Millie calmly said to her daughter, “Aren’t you going to say ,Hello! I don’t need your permission to invite anybody over. Do you need anything?” To me that’s how I will remember her. Arms always open as an angel should be pictured. One of a kind.🙏🏻 Rest In Peace Millie 🙏🏻
