Joanna Copeland Shropshire, November 27, 2020 To Charles, Betty and families, What sad news to hear about your mom's passing. We were neighbors for over 30 years and I remember so many good memories of the grocery store and of your family having photos made at Lucas Studio. Your mom and dad were always smiling and I will certainly miss your mom. Since being friends on Facebook with Charles, I had meant to say I would like to visit Mildred as soon as Covid is over. God bless all of you and know our prayers are with all of you. I am sorry I will not be able to attend the service but will watch it and say prayers. Mildred was a lovely lady. Your family has been included in wonderful memories from my childhood. Mary Virginia Holcomb Dickerson, November 27, 2020 Sorry for your loss. She was a sweet lady.
Carol VanMeter, November 27, 2020 Thinking of you both today and praying for the Good Lord to bring you peace and comfort. I remember my Jr.High Texas History class with your mom and always have had good memories of her class and making a notebook which I could probably still find at Mother’s! She was a good, no nonsense, teacher but you always knew she liked us all! We had many good times as neighbors and then all the way through high school. Love to you all, Marilyn Lawrence Mosley Marilyn Lawrence Mosley, November 27, 2020
