We would like to express our sadness at hearing of the passing of Millie Brister, former mayor and councillor for Hounslow (Chronicle, January 8).
We were both privileged to serve with Millie during her term as councillor and found her to be young at heart and always concerned with the well-being of others.
She fulfilled the mayoral role with dignity and grace. This was a role richly deserved for someone who had spent manyyears working in, and with, her community.
What a wonderful legacy she leaves, a good and long life well lived, and an example to all of us.
