Tammy, Billy, Willie and family. I’m so sorry to hear of your loss. I only heard of it today. Millie was just like a mother to me as well as all of our other friends through Jr High and High School. I loved her like my own and she will be greatly missed.
Tammy, Yvette Hubbard sends her condolences as well and you and your family are in her thoughts. She is the one who let me know. I’ll try to get by to see you tomorrow.

I heard from a friend today that Mrs. Millie had passed on. I was best friends with her son Willie in high school. I loved her dearly. I have not been intouch with her for a while but I loved her. I remember hanging out at their house after school. She was a sweet sweet lady. We had a true connection and I will never forget her. To Willie, I love you and I am praying for you. I can’t even imagine what you and your family are going through. I pray for peace and healing for you all.
