A lady I will not forget. She helped my wife and I and later just me when we needed it most. I met ‘Mimo’ on trip and “drug her around London” through the cold light rain, across the ‘wobbly bridge’ and to other sites. She was a trooper. I hope to be doing as well when I reach that age. She never met a stranger or anyone that was not drawn to her warm smile. Even when we disagreed (about her care) she was pleasantly firm (sort of like a large granite stone). I miss her already.

She had three sons: Gordon Bryson Lewis, Andrew Clark Lewis, and Steven Laurence Lewis.
Mildred loved to travel. She attended Adventures in Learning and was able to take numerous group trips to Europe. She enjoyed reading, learning history, and doing crossword puzzles. She was always up for a new adventure such as belly dancing, Tai Chi, water aerobics, driving cross country with her close friend (Thelma and Louise), and going to San Francisco with her eldest son, Bryson.
