Another dream for Millie came true today. Thank you Persnickety for making her a fashion designer!!!

Amelia (Millie) Flamm came into our lives as a result of a recent company service project. We haven’t been the same since.
Once a quarter we do a service project to increase the happiness of those within our sphere of influence. After learning about Millie and her desire to be a fashion designer, we decided we’d like to help make that dream come true.
Our design team took a day and met with Millie to see which of her drawings would work best. We discovered Millie was a very talented artist – and a very talented “whistler” as you’ll see from the video.
After deciding on the perfect art piece, we learned from Millie’s parents that her time left was short. Indeed very short.
We rushed the design and sample process so we could get a finished product in Millie’s hands before she passed.
The day we brought the finished outfit to Millie’s house she was so weak she would only wake for minutes at a time and
her parents didn't expect her to make it through the day.
We gave it to her Dad, left, and prayed for a miracle that she would wake up to see what she had created – to see her dream come true.
Finally, she woke, got up and hugged her mom, then laid down and slipped away free from the pain and restraints of this life.
We learned that throughout the struggle and fight against leukemia, Millie never complained. She spent her time and energy worrying about and helping others.
Her Motto was “Stay Strong.” She has left a legacy of faith, strength and inspiration and will always be a reminder to us to Do and Be Better.
