Mildred was a very nice lady and a joy to be around. I live directly across the street from them and have watched her and Paul leave and return from working daylight to dark for their mowing business during the nineteen years I have lived here. I loved her voice and enjoyed her humorous comments about Paul. We will all really miss her.
