Mildred was my friend. We shared so many great moments. Some of my favorites were our trips to Chase Cottage and Martha's Vine yard. lunch at Ruby Tuesday when AJ was a baby and working together at PHS. The most outstanding one was when she trusted me to coordinate Jonelle's wedding. This was a big deal for me. I couldn't believe it. Everything went super well. We had a great and blessed day. Jonelle was a beautiful bride and John was a handsome groom.
