Dear, sweet Millie. I think of you often and of all the memories we shared. Having our 50th high school reunion this past Fall made me miss you more. Rest in peace, my friend.

Millie and I had many classes together in high school. I didn't know her real well other then I quickly realized what a sweetheart of a person she was. her smile was infectious. Surely, it was a real treat for those who knew her well. Those being family, what a blessing.

My sincerest condolences.

This is the first I am hearing of Millie's passing. We were very close friends during high school and had recently reconnected through Facebook. We had a wonderful visit when I went to see her during our freshman year of college. I am heartsick. My deepest condolences to her beloved family.

I really enjoyed getting to know Millie during her years as a sub at Stevenson High School. Her love for life was surpassed only by her love for all of you. Thinking of all of the Mnookin family at this time of sudden and untimely loss.

Dear Mnookin Family, I'm deeply saddened to hear about the loss of Millie. Growing up a BGRA kid, and being on plenty of Mr. Mnookin managed teams I have fond memories of Millie keeping score, supplying the team with plenty of candy/gum, and being a happy, smiling face no matter what the score. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of Millie's family and relatives during this sorrowful time. Kyle Goldberg (Fiona and Saxon)
