I was saddened to hear about Ms. Mildred. I remember going down and paying her Mama's insurance premium at Tart's. She was an awesome lady! I hadn't seen her in years but have fond memories of her. My condolences to the family.Debbie Humbarger Payne

My sincere condolences to each of her loved ones. Carla, thank you for sharing your home along with your family with me as we were growing up and us contributing to the gray hair your Mama and Daddy would acquire because of us being rowdy and rambunctious. Some of my most special memories are of us being across the street playing ball, upstairs aggravating Christy, fussing and arguing with Ben and being down behind your house hanging out. I later as an adult came to know just what a special little lady Ms. Mildred was, and we really had some wonderful talks. My prayers will remain with the family as you face the days ahead.
