    Such a dear soul was Mila! We became good buddies when working together at Marshall Field’s at City Center and also Tuttle Crossing. Everyone loved her and I was always asked about her when I visited with her friends that worked there.
    I shall never forget you and your beautiful soul!
    RIP dear Mila. You were one in a million!
