    To the Family of Mrs. Collins: I am Jan Bennett. I moved into the Sunridge North Condos, Unit 2, next to Mrs. Collins, in November 2004. One of the first persons I met was Mrs. Collins. She was such a kind and caring person. If she didn’t see me out for a few days she would call me to see if I was ok. I would check on her also. She had me over for pie and coffee and just to sit and chat a while. I am going to miss her. I really appreciated her kindness and friendliness to me. She was a wonderful lady. You, the family, are in my prayers and my thoughts. If I can do anything to help you in anyway, please let me know. God bless Jan Bennett Apt 2 Sunridge North Condos

    My mother, Wilmetta Madden (age 95), and Milner were very good friends. It was necessary for me to place mother in an assisted living home last week so I will make her aware of Milner’s passing. They were great bridge buddies. We are all saddened by the news and give our sympathy to all of her family. Fondly, Doris Walton

    Dear Lattie, Jeter and all other family member, Just wanted to send our sincerest sympathies and prayers to each one of you in the passing of your mother, grandmother and friend.
