Dear Tom(Barb) and Melanie(Michael),
No one can replace your mom, but God can comfort ALL your hearts. He knows what you need during this time much better than anyone else.
My heart goes out to all of you, there is nothing like it when you lose a parent, it changes you forever but I hope and pray, in time, you will all find peace.
Your Mom was a wonderful Aunt growing up and throughout my adult life. I always remember your mom baking all the time and making ethnic foods. She made a lot of excellent cookies, baked goods, including my high school graduation cake. During the holidays, when I was around 10ish, she put together a pamphlet of Christmas songs so we all practiced the songs and went caroling which is why I remember 2nd and 3rd verses to Christmas songs and also many different carols.
She was also a great seamstress and made some amazing costumes that I would borrow when I worked at IGA/Mr.Z’s throughout the years and not just for Halloween. I know when I went on a hike down by the railroad tracks with her in Sept of 2015 she was telling me about all the costumes she still has upstairs, as we hiked, by the way she could hike a long way. Aunt Millie always loved the outdoors, planting and doing things, hence the cottage—purple and blue “Easter eggs” as I was told when I went up to see them during my 2015 trip.
Aunt Millie know that there are so many great memories through the years. You are loved, You will be missed but I also know that your spirit is still living around me and that I can still talk to you.
Love and Peace—May God Bless You,
I’m so so sorry for your loss.
I remember her as a sweet and lovely woman.
She will be missed
Aunt Millie—may you Rest In Peace. God Bless you.
Those we love don’t go away,
They walk beside us everyday,
Unseen, unheard, but always near,
Still loved, still missed and very dear.
