Miss Mildred was always a very sweet woman. I loved her as if she were a part of my own family. And she adored me. She's like the great grandmother I never had. I'm going to miss that sweet, loving angel very much.

One of the most precious memories of our years at Back Creek was our relationship with “cuz’ns” Mildred and Virginia. (We are on the Knox Family Tree that Virginia revised.) How we enjoyed countless visits, goodies from their garden and kitchen, and numerous conversations about BC history and our families. I am so thankful the Lord enabled us to visit with Mildred just after her 100th birthday!!! We loved her dearly.
