Joe and Kathy,
Just heard about your mom, my sympathies are with you.  She was such a sweet and wonderful lady and will be greatly missed.  Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you.

Joe and Kathy,  I am so sorry for the loss you feel.  Your family is a part of
the good memories of my childhood at Union Church.  Seeing your Mom
walk across the bridge to church and back home is a memory my son has of
her.  Yesterday, at Union, my brother Jerry asked prayer for your family.
He also said Mrs. Mildred was a good woman and the world was a better place with her in it.  Amen to that.  How fitting that your Mom and Dad are
buried in such a peaceful place close to where they raised you and took you
to church.  God will help you in this.  I promise to pray for that and hope
your Mom's passing will cause any in her family who has not been saved
to consider eternity.  Love to you all.

Our sincere sympathy at this time of your loss. Mildred and my dad(Hollis McDonald) were cousins. I remember her from church at Union Camp many, many years ago. It was such a wonderful time in our lives. May God be with all of you.

It's so very hard to express my feelings.  I've known "Aunt Midlo" all of my life.  All of my life is eternity for me and eternity isn't supposed to end...but it does, at least here on earth.  I wish all of the family (Kathy and Joe especially) the best and wish I could be there for you.
