Sorry to hear of Mildred’s passing. My mom & dad thought a lot of her and I enjoyed visiting with her when she ate with us @ our “restaurant in Carolina”. Her smiling face was a welcome addition to our dining room on every visit she made to NC to see Tommy & Belinda. She was always so kind with her compliments as we shared stories of days gone by. God bless.
