The Brotherhood of St. Andrew at Saint James in Paso Robles had their weekly gathering on April 25 for Bible study , Breakfast, and parish yard clean up. Millard was a member when he lived here. We were saddened by seeing his obituary in the Atascadero paper. So we shared our memories. Millard made biscuits for us on A Saturday. And , after moving to Raleigh, when Maxine and Mill would visit with the Elliot's, Mill would faithfully visit the brotherhood. The Brothers that were there were Joe Chouinard, Matt Brannon, Ray Gordon, Al Vossler, Ed Railsback, Newlin Hastings, Fr. Ken Beason, Hart Junge, Rich Hungerford, and Carson Cargill.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Bronson Family at Millard's passing. The Keith Elliott family enjoyed our visits during the many Reunions we attended and Millard will always be remembered as a well-respected member of the extended Family. Please let us know if there are any photos or genealogical info you might want from Keith's collection (Mark has re-assembled it all since Keith's passing).

We will always remember the fun times at the cabin, playing cards in the afternoon after
Millard had a few too many, suddenly disappeared and was in bed taking a "nap". Also
when we had our big german shepherd Samson, he would take him when he walked to
the lodge to get the newspaper every morning. He will be missed by all of us.
