    My condolences to the family of Mildred Stockton. I have fond memories of Ms Stockon as a child and as an adult. She was a dear friend of the late Preston Starling family. May the love of God embrace and comfort you during this time!!!!!!

    I had the priviledge of knowing Mrs. Stockton (and the Stockton family) while growing up in Artesia and she was a great and wonderful person. She will certainly be missed by everyone that knew her.

    Because I grew up with Danny, I had the distinct pleasure of knowing this great family, and Mrs. Stockton was certainly the bedrock! A funny, smart, gracious lady!

    Mildred was such a lovely lady. I will always cherish our weekly visits at the beauty salon as I had the pleasure of doing her manicures for many years. She always had a smile and her face a giggle or two. Rest in Peace sweet Mildred.
