    Roger and I went to church with Mildred when we lived in Frankfort. She is one of those wonderful people that came along side us and loved our children.. I love how she loved on the children of the church as well. She was such an encourager and inspiration. Due to the many miles between us we will not be able to be at the graveside service, but your wonderful family will be in my thoughts and prayers. I look forward to a family reunion in heaven one day, until then – Mildred!! Thank You for the memories and the love you gave so freely..

    I want to let you know I cared deeply for your mother, I work as a QMA at WM. This is where I met her. I found out she was from Colfax. I told her my family was from Colfax, too. So I asked her if she knew my GGpa Raliegh Higer. She laughed and said you mean Uncle Raliegh. As she told the story, he really isn’t her Uncle, but an older cousin, that they called Uncle. Just one of many conversions we had, I heard about each and everyone of you kids and some stories of the gkids. She loved you all dearly…
    Tell your memories of her, and she will live in your heart. If there is a way…. She will be checking in on all of you….. She will be greatly missed….
    Her graveside service was nice, she would’ve liked it….
