    I am so sorry for you loss. My condolences. There are so many things running through my head right now about all the things Mrs. Militscher had done for me over the many years that I've known the family. She will always be in our hearts. She was a very compassionate person. Loving and witty. She will be missed by all. Remember all the good times that you shared with her.
