    I am so sorry that I was not aware of this in time to attend the service. Jim and Mildred were dear friends of mine when we all attended Elliston Baptist Church. I always enjoyed sharing the men”s fishing trip back then. Jim and Mildred were and always will be great Christian examples. I know that Mildred is now with our Lord in Heaven. My God bless and give peace to the family.

    Mildred, you will be greatly missed. You are my Daddy’s last family. His only Sister, actually only sibling. My husband & I would love to be there for you & your family. We are older in age too, & due to health reasons, we aren’t able to make it. I’ve prayed so much for you since you’ve been sick. Jesus needed another Angel & He chose you. You had a major impact on your students that you loved so much. Rest In Peace beautiful lady. You can rejoice in Heaven with your Mom & Dad & Brother & many others. God Bless you. Love,,,, Norma Kaye
