Condolence & Memory Journal

I was so sorry to hear of Millie's passing. She was a dear friend, loved playing bridge with her. She was always making us laugh about something. Never a dull moment with her. She watched out for me at Coosaw Creek. Although I was a member I didn't live there so at club events she would always ask me to join her table. My mother hen! I really appreciated her kindness. My condolences to your family. She will be in my prayers.

We were so blessed to have known Milly for the last few years!! My mother Bea Henise loved her dearly and will miss her until they meet again. Their time together at The Village Of Summerville was awesome they were the best of friends. Milly was just such a breath of fresh air and knew how to put a smile on everyone’s face! I will miss seeing her there and I know my mom misses her buddy! All of our love to the family, she was very special and one-of-a-kind!

MaMil was a bonus grandmother to my sister and I and we loved her dearly. She was a big part of our lives and was one of the most important and influential people to us. We can't believe she is gone, but know she is happy to be with Pa Joe, B-Ma, her father, and her brother, our grandfather. I will love her forever and miss her every day. Rest in Peace MaMil!

I think my Grandmother, Rhea Spencer, has been waiting for her pal to join her as an angel. They are certainly going to stir up some trouble!!! Heaven is in for it, but we will miss her dearly!
