    Jeff, I am so very sorry to hear of Millie’s passing. I am so glad I was able to know her. I know she loved you and the kids very deeply.

    Talking to her and learning of the people we both knew earlier in our lives, to me, cemented we were to cross paths one day. She had an infectious smile and I consider myself blessed for having known her.
