  2. We send our thoughts and prayers to Millie's family. During the time that we attended the same church, we received so much love from her. She was always willing to share her thoughts and her sweet comments regarding my music. Her and Don are together once again. Thank you for sharing her with others. Dick and Lou Oliver
