Willie and Gail and other family members,
I was sad to see this notice of your mom’s passing. We know how difficult it is to lose a parent and grandparent. I worked with Millie at the Masonic Hospital after I graduated high school. May God give you comfort and strength during this time.
Love and care, Patty Payne Rudd
