Sara & family. I just found out today about Milton. Donnell and I are so very sorry. He was such a good man and scout leader. I think his favorite job was serving as our Fishing Merit Badge Counselor. He had a lot of knowledge he could pass on to the scouts.

We will always cherish our dinners out with you to eat fish. I can just picture Milton in heaven ready to throw that line in the big fishing hole. Please know that we are thinking of you and praying for your family.

Sara, thinking of you with our thoughts and prayers. Milton was a friend for many years, enjoying HHSAA luncheons, class breakfasts with both of you was a joy. Know that we care and comfort comes from knowing we'll see him again on the "other" side of life. May GOD wrap HIS arms of LOVE around you and your family.
