As an employee of Cherokee Electrical, Inc., I had the pleasure of working with Millie over the past two years when she came to our office in Cherokee.

We shared many talks and lunches together. It was during our talks one learns of her love for her family. She also tried several cultural foods with me, especially enjoying our fry-bread and chilli.

I take comfort in knowing that Millie is a devout Christian lady and is now in the presence of our Lord and Saviour.

She’s a very special lady and will be missed.

Even though I only had the opportunity to meet Millie in recent years, she always bore that infectious smile that greeted me whenever I entered the front office at Hayes & Lunsford. My sympathy goes out to the family during this time, and please know that you all will remain in our thoughts and our prayers during the coming days as we all learn to adapt to life containing a void left by Millie. I pray that God will prove to be the inspiration and perspective you may need in the days ahead.
