I knew and was a close friend of Milburn's during the years when he lived in Doylestown, PA. He was a kind and caring soul who will be sorely missed. RIP, Milburn...my dear friend.

I knew Milburn in highschool and at Lamar. He was a kind and gentle person. He played in my wedding (3/1/74). Once Milburn happened to visit the church I attended in Vernon,Ct. because he happened to be involved in a musical comedy fund raiser for the Rockville Vernon Hospital. He came by our home for a visit. I'm sad to hear of his death. Valerie Rush Sexton (Vernon, Ct.)

I have made a contribution to Samaritan's Purse in Milburn's memory, for the people of The Phillipines. I know he would like that.

I am sooo sorry that he never attended any of our FHS70 reunions. I hope his life was full of joy and prosperity. He was a great violinist in our school orchestra.
