sorry for your loss, I wished I had known her, my daddy is Ruell, I talked to her on the phone when daddy died, asking if daddy knew the Lord, lots of family I didn't know I had until after his death :(

I have very fond memories of Aunt Mildred making me and Pam toast with soft cooked egg and grape jelly on top. Of her listening to the Osmonds with us, to our chatter about school and boys and above all basketball. She was a special lady. Love you Pam and Billie and Terry.
