"Boy, how will miss those turkey tips, potato salad and candy yams. Never the one to sugar coat a thing, Mildred sure had a way with her words, she told it like it was while feeding you. One of Mildred's greatest gifts was, her natural ability to love, and care for people whose path she crossed. In some magical way she just adopted you. One of the greatest examples of Mildred's love was how she cared for her 102 year old mother.
