    The Lord be with you Bill and Family. Millie will be missed, but she rests from her labors. She will sin no more, and has been redeemed by Christ the Crucified. Let the promise that He will be with us always comfort you these days ahead. Jesus is the Resurrection and the Life. In Him is life everlasting. Go in peace.
