Mildred's family would like to extend their sincere "Thanks" to all the faithful Green Creek Meals on Wheels drivers for their many years of dedicated service, for without you, Mom wouldn't have been able to stay in her home. Your visits meant so much to her. Also, to all the nurses, aids, and therapists at Heartland Christian Village for your gentle loving care. You are all truly "Angels of Mercy" and your kindness will not be forgotten.
