May God be with all of you in this time of loss. Aunt Mildred will live on forever in our hearts. Aunt Mildred was always smiling everytime I saw her. I remember when we took Mom by to see her she was so happy to see her and told us to bring her by anytime! I will miss her and Aunt Mildred when you get to Heaven please say hi to my Daddy as I know he will be right there beside Uncle Oscar talking like they always were, tell him I love him and I miss him! May your beautiful smile be rays of sun shining down on us from Heaven!
Linda, Bubby, and Jeremy

I never had the opportunity to meet Ms. Peak but I have certainly heard wonderful things about her from my son-in-law John Tucker and daughter Lynn. I know from my own family that grandmoms are special people. So I know she will be missed by her family and friends. My heart goes out to you. My prayer is that God will give you peace and comfort in the knowledge that she has reaped her reward.

We are so sorry for your loss. I remember Mildred and Oscar from the old days when they lived in Cleveland. Together they were always fun to be around and such loving and wonderful family. They are both at peace now.
God Bless all of you in these trying times.

I have lost my Grandmother she will be missed dearly not only by me but many others. I rember when we used to stay the night with Granny and Papaw how I always got in trouble for sneeking and going to get in the bed to sleep with Terry cause i was afraid to sleep by myself. Granny would come make me get out of the bed with him. We would do things i think just to get her to say something to us. I Love you and miss you Granny! You can be with Papaw now. We will rember you always

May God bless each of you at this time....Mildred was a beautiful, loving and caring person....In all the years that I have known her, I have never heard her say a harmful word about anyone.
I remember the best of times when we would just call and say...wanna get out of the house...she was always ready...we would spend the whole day together... beautiful memories..
You are now with your loved ones that have gone on before you...........May your angelic smile shine down on all of us.
I love you
