    To Harry, Betty, Janet, and family,
    We are so sorry to hear about Mildred’s accident and passing. We have only been in Nashville a few times, but Mildred and Harry both were always generous hosts and great story tellers. Len’s dad, Chuck Thurman, always called Mildred “his other sister,” so we’ve always felt closer than distance allowed. As Thurmans we have listened to a wealth of Miss Lily and Lynch Family stories and loved Mildred for her passionate interest in family genealogy. She was a kind gentle soul and will be missed. Please accept our sympathies and wishes for your comfort and well being.

    I am so sad to think of the future Lynch Family Reunion without cousin Mildred. But I am so happy to know she is with our Heavenly Father and rejoicing with all of our family that she so eagerly talked of. I will miss her storytellering and her sweet presence. I am so thankful to have had the time I did have to spend with her. I pray for her immediate family to have peace and feel God’s comfort.

    I’ve had time to reflect on what Mrs. Fairbanks meant to me. Mildred had so many wonderful God given gifts. The one that I loved and admired the most was her Kindness. She had such a sweet presence about her and would do anything for anyone. I love and miss her and I know she is in God’s presence.
