If anyone knew Mildred, they knew she was a lover of the word and the Lord. When she passed, her bible was on her lap turned to Philippians 4; 4-7. 4 Rejoice in the Lord always; and again I say, “Rejoice!” 5 Let your moderation be known to all men. The Lord is at hand. 6 Fret not about anything, but in everything, by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known unto God. 7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
She was a phenomenal mother, grandmother, Good Samaritan to many, a songbird, missionary, prayer warrior, daughter, sister, aunt, cousin, and friend! She always had a worship song in her spirit and a scripture for any situation.
