Mildred James was my great grandmother and even though she would always fuss at me I still loved her and she was a very very special and sweet person and we would always have fun together and we were very sad when we heard that she wasn’t doing so well and the next day we heard that she died and we all were very very sad and I knew that she loved me and she knew I loved her very much.

Some things that I really remember are how she loved her family. All the times they would spend together in her backyard playing games or pitching horseshoes. At Christmas she always wanted us to have a little gift. The times we stood at the fence and talked. Rest in peace wonderful neighbor.
