Commentary

‘Mildred’s Musings’ columns appreciated

Dear editor,

Thank you so much, Joy Graham and Bill Cooke for the wonderful tributes to our mother, Mildred Luckey Harris Baker, which have appeared in Joy’s column for the past few weeks.

Mother loved nothing better than getting her name in print.

In our youth she told us that if one of us didn’t make The Reporter at least once a month, there was something bad wrong.

I have clipped, copied and shared them with her distant grandchildren/great grandchildren and I have so personally enjoyed the comments of so many Rockdalians who have expressed their pleasure in reading the column.

Mother loved Rockdale and it seems Rockdale loved her back.

Again, many thanks for sharing her stories. She was unique.
