Mildred and I attended EKU 1960-1964. We met in Burnham Hall our first year and became good friends. Over the years we had great fun and shared many good memories. After graduation, we continued to stay in touch with other friends by attending our annual EKU Girlfriend Reunions. These meetings took place in the fall at Lexington where we spent 3 days attending Keenland and talking about "good times at school" and catching up on each others lives. Mildred was always one of my favorite friends and I have many good memories of her. She was always kind and loving ,she will be missed by all who knew and loved her. My love and prayers go to her family she loved all of you so much! Judy Meade Bell
