    So sorry for the loss of Millie. I have precious childhood memories of spending time with her and Chet at their house on the river. Thank you for those memories. May you find comfort during this difficult time. Toni (Starin) Peterson

    Millie, We want to thank you for the most precious gift of all "time". That gift came with love, laughter, tears and joy! Our time was filled with thousands of hugs and "I love you". There were visits that filled the house with laughter and tears as we talked about life, but most of all that time brought joy. From Sunday morning coffee, bismark's and doughnuts which included working on puzzles for hours looking for that final piece. When all else failed, we devoured your candy Listening to your stories about life on the river as we looked over hundreds of pictures that were packed away in a shoe box. You remembered each photo vividly! Each picture brought out a new story and you could present it in a way that brought each occasion to life. Even if we were not part of the occasion, it always felt as though we were. Oh, the birthdays we celebrated and all the cake and ice cream we ate. To a Friday night fish fry to the late nights, you always waited up for us. Millie, we thank you for the gift of time! We love you and will always remember the most precious gift of all that you shared with us, your time.

    I have known Millie since 1967 when I first came to the cottage next door at 15. She was always so pleasant to visit with and we became very close over these many years. She will be greatly missed by me and Kathy and our children. Loved her like a mother. Paul
