I'm sorry this is so late, but I want Millie's family to know that I always felt like part of the family. I loved Millie, she was like a 2nd Mom to me... I was so fortunate to have Pat and Linda as friends - I remember all the good times we had roller skating on Weds. & Sundays at the Hookstown skating rink. There were times we laughed until we cried - especially when our favorite songs would play. I will remember and cherish the good times. Millie had a heart of gold and loved children and homemaking. She reminded me a lot of my own mother. I loved talking to her and she was so excited telling me all about her children's accomplishments. She was so proud of all of her children. She was a wonderful Mom. She will be sadly missed by all who knew her.

Linda and the Cavender family, My deepest sympathies on the passing of your mom. When I think of her, I remember riding to 4th ward in the station wagon with all us kids squeezed in when it rained. Those were days that were carefree. Your mom took everyone under her wing and kept us safe. May God Bless you all at this difficult time. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Rosanne

Indeed, Aunt Sis was like a second mom to me also. Visiting her home on the edge of town was always a treat. After a full day of running in the corn rows of Uncle Ray's garden, splitting shale in the fossil field, or hiking the countless trails and creeks in the woods out back, it was always her voice that called us back at the end of the day. I'll never forget the warmth and love I felt the last time I saw her. We are all blessed to have known her.

"Sis" was one of my parents. I spent almost as much time under her care as I did with my own mother. She helped make me the person I am today. Some of my happiest memories occured in that kitchen on Chestnut Street. It feels like my whole childhood was spent in her back yard, under her watchful and caring eyes. I can still feel her hugs. My thoughts and prayers are with Ray, Linda, Ray Jr. and her whole family.
