So very sad to hear of Mildred’s passing, though there is great comfort knowing she’s in the arms of our Father. She will forever be my all time favorite pianist. I learned much from her, and am ever amazed at her talent and ability to play on the piano anything that she hears. She and Wendell always had my greatest respect and admiration. Take comfort in so many memories passed on through several generations

My condolences go out to Sally, Jessica, and the rest of the family. She lived a full life, surrounded by the love of her family. She's together again with the love of her life. Rest assured that you will see her again in Glory.
