Through years of working and worshipping together, whether in Africa or the U.S. my family developed a strong affinity for Millie, Gene and their family born of trust and admiration for their faithful and exemplary service. This was lived out in the enumerable ways close friends trust, support and comfort each other whether in great deed or simple companionship which now, in the wake of Millie's passing, are of special memory. Having experienced the shared commitment and dedication of Millie and my mother (Louise Snyder) to relieving the burdens of others it seems particularly fitting that they would reunite on the occasion of my Mom's birthday and experience in full the love they helped so many of us share in part. To Gene, Angie, Brian, Michelle and the whole clan we are with you in mind, heart and prayer.

Milly was a wonderful, faithful woman that reflected the love of Jesus in a special way. She played the piano quite well and had a sneaky great sense of humor. Will be missed greatly. She and Gene have been a great team and their marriage was a shining example of a Godly relationship that works !
