    Mildred was so kind, thoughtful and helpful to all WV Shooters. We named her our mother of WV Lady Shooters. When I went to my first WV State shoot, she came right up to me and introduced herself, asked me if I needed help and explained some of the rules to me. When I came off the line, she made a point of checking on me and seeing how I did.

    From that year on I called her a friend. She was one class act and cannot be replaced.

    My heart goes out to you Richard, remember you have many friends that will support you.

    God Bless

    Back during the good old days at Pinehurst, Richard would hand out WVA pins. I pulled many a target for that pair.

    What a sweet woman and she will be sorely missed!
