Janet, Paula & Family:
I want to express my sincerest condolences on your loss. I have a great deal of wonderful memories of working with Milt in the Fraud Branch. He was a great support to me in my own career, and he had a great sense of humour. I will never forget him.

Janet
I want to offer my condolences in your loss of Milt. Milt meant quite a lot to me and was responsible and always supportive of my promotions throughout the years. Fortunately, I got to have a short visit with him in the hospital a couple of weeks ago.
I am unable to attend his funeral as I had a bad fall last week and severely injured my leg.
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family and I will always remember "Uncle Milty".

My heart goes out to you Janet and your family.

"Uncle Milty" was the first boss I had when I joined the Hamilton-Wentworth Regional Police in 1981.

His kindness and support for me as a 'newbie' with the Department will always be remembered. He also had a wicked sense of humour which I truly enjoyed.

This is one of the special ones that can never be replaced, although Milt held a superior rank he treated all individuals with dignity and respect. I had a great admiration for this wonderful man, he will be truly missed.
