Mildred was a true blessing to her church family at St Luke's UMC. I am sure she will be long rememberd by the many young people for whom she crocheted bible markers in honor of their confirmations.
May God provide peace and comfort to those who knew and loved her.

What I regret the most is not being able to come to visit you and having you meet your great- great grandchildren. You are now up in Heaven watching over us all. I will always keep you in my heart and will forever love you and miss you.

"If tears could build a stairway
and memories were a lane
We would walk right up to heaven
And bring you back again.
No farewell words were spoken
No time to say goodbye
You were gone before we knew it
And only God knows why
Our hearts still ache in sadness
and secret tears still flow
What it meant to lose you
No one will ever know
But now we know you want us
To mourn for you no more
To remember all the happy times
Life still has much in store
Since you'll never be forgotten
We pledge to you today
A cherished place within our heart
Is where you'll always stay"

You will be missed and loved always Munoz Family, Washington, D.C.

When we are old the person we really have been our whole life shows though.
Mildred shows the face of an angel,her longevity a testament to her faith.
