   Posted Fri October 09, 2015
Please accept our condolences on the loss of our brother and uncle Millard. May God bless and keep each and everyone of you during this time of sorry. Jane has always prayed for all her brothers and sister (Millard, Glenn, Billy, & Margie) since they were separated many years ago and asked God every day to Bless and watch over them and their families. She wishes she could be there to pay her respects but is unable do to health problems. Myself being a retired 25 yr military serviceman want to personally saying "Thank you Uncle Millard for your Military Service". We both served in Vietnam but I doubt if our paths would have ever crossed. Only got to meet my uncle twice in my lifetime but my mother always talked highly of you and with the utmost respect. God Bless and rest in peace. Your Oldest Sister Jane Grubbs Stevenson Circleville, Ohio and Nephew John L. Stevenson Reynoldsburg, Ohio.
