I'm so sorry to hear about Jim. I will miss seeing his smiling face at the Lions club events, especially the turkey dinner. Deepest condolences to you Millie and your family. I'm glad I did stop at your house and saw him.

Offering prayers and thoughts to your whole family on the passing of your dad and husband, Jim. I was shocked to read the obituary and it brought back many memories. I taught Carolyn @ Lily Lake many years ago and also worked with Mildred at Lily Lake. Your dad was a wonderful man who always wanted the best for his wife and children. May he rest in peace and have eternal life in Heaven. God Bless.
