So sorry for the family's loss. Millie was a wonderful person and had a great impact on my life. She taught me piano for 10 years and was always kind and encouraging to me. I have used the skill she taught me ever since! I accompanied chorus in high school and was pianist in all the churches I was a member of; in fact I still play today in my church over 40 years later! May God bring you all comfort in His love of Millie. My prayers are with you.
