  1. Born on the feast day of St. Francis of Assisi and entered heaven on St. Valentine’s Day! What a wonderful tribute for a love-filled and sparkling lady who I remember fondly and ever-so-clearly from my growing-up days as one of Kathy’s friends (elementary school, high school, college and beyond!). I’m fortunate to have known Millie — she’s one of a very special generation who gave much and who are now greatly missed. May she rest in light and peace and send us blessings from her new home. With loving thoughts to Kathy and all of Millie’s family.

  2. So very sorry to hear of Millie’s passing. What a lovely lady. She & Vince were great friends of my parents, Ruth & Steve, at Moraine Camplands. My sincere condolences to your family.
