Mary Ann, John, Joe, Betsy and Jay...I am sorry to hear of your mom's passing. I will always remember her fondly. My greatest memory is seeing her working in the kitchen on the hottest days of summer, slaving over the stove making jelly or canning. Take comfort that she is no longer suffering and that she is in the arms of our Lord and back with the love of her life.

To the entire Flask family,

We have been praying to Mother Marianne Cope in hopes that she would lay her hands on Aunt Millie and take away her cancer and make her just one more miricle. We even went to all of our area churches and set up prayer sessions for her. Our hopes were that she would be with us for years to come, but instead she was called home to the Holy Father and will be watching down on all of us from a better place. We are now praying for the family. God bless you all. Gods hands be on you now and his blessings be with us all.
In loving memory of Aunt Millie,

The McFall Family.

Dear Millie's family and loved ones:
I went to high school with Millie and Jack. She was a beautiful and sweet girl. We reconnected a couple of years ago and enjoyed scrabble at Canton Woods and went to our 50th HS reunion together. She was more beautiful then as a mature woman, mother and grandmother and told me how much she loved all of you and missed her Jack. My condolances to all of you.
