Margie, Karen, Pam, Cindy, Robin ,Angie and families,
So sorry to hear about your Mom’s passing. Mrs. Pugh was such a sweet lady and I will always remember her. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you during this most difficult time.
To the Family of Mildred Pugh…
Please accept my sympathy at the death of Mildred. I had hoped to stop and pay my respects. I am sorry that did not happen. You are in my prayers. God bless you.
To all of the Pugh family.. especially Mildred’s six amazing daughters and their families: So sorry to hear that she has passed. It was a pleasure getting to know Mildred and Robert through the many meals I got to spend with them. Although I only knew them the last few years I know they were wonderful people and surrounded by so many people that loved them. My thoughts and prayers are with the family.
It was a joyous occasion when we recently sang at Hillside acres a little while ago. Mildred was the happiest person there, clapping and raising her hands and praising the Lord. It’s a awesome thought to think that our songs escorted her into the gates of heaven. May God’s grace be with the entire family and give you Comfort.
