Mildred Hiller Cohn 1921-2008

The Cohns, May 2003

Millie died Sunday night. Her paintings and legacy are spread around the Alabama and wherever Cohns now live. I am glad that she passed on her gumbo recipe, but regret that her pickles will only be remembered and never tasted again. She taught me the basics of golf and, roughly, how to drive a golf cart. She will be missed.

I'm sorry to hear that, Alex.

And I never understood what problem those silly CPOY judges had with this picture. I think its a wonderful image and a wonderful way to remember Millie.

Agreed. I've always been partial to Tony Hale floating in Glenwood Hot Springs, probably because I saw you take that photo, but this image has far more meaning. Especially now. And you definitely respected her dignity.
