Our condolences to all the Rogers Family and to Debbie Morse upon the passing of Mildred to eternal life with our Father.

We had the great honor and fortune knowing Mildred these past years through our sister Debbie who provided comfort and care for her great friend.

Sharp as a tack, Mildred was a joy to be with when visiting in Athens sharing many a tale about life well lived there in Tennessee.

Live on great lady and guide us in our yet untold journey's until we see each other once again there in heaven.

What a lady and what fun to be around. I'll never forget the red roofed house in Englewood. Gone is her physical body but her memories will last forever.
