My heartfelt sympathy and prayers to the family, May the God who binds up the broken hearted and comforts all who mourn sustain and surround you until you meet again. Psalms 147:3

CandleDave and Danny, sorry to here about aunt Millie. I have so many good memories of her over the years. She always will have a place in my heart. She always made sure I had my own jar of her special pickles when I was growing up. Boy did love those. So sorry I won’t be able to make it back for the funeral, but you all will be in my prayers.
