I was so sad to hear of the passing of Mr. Milam. It was always a pleasure to interact with him on his many visits to the Anticoagulation Clinic. He was always a pleasure and I have never forgotten how he liked the color orange. I pray that God will comfort your hearts and give you peace as only He can do in the midst of your storm.
