I am so sorry to hear that we have lost our friend Milly. I had the good fortune to work with Milly in Homicide/Robbery at DPD. A fine man and dedicated police officer. I am so much better off for having known him. I never see a flock of pidgeons that I don't think of Milly. Great Guy!!

True friends are hard to find. In a lifetime you only get a few. And when you find them you always know them by sight and heart alone and you also know that as the years come and go by, you have been blessed to have them in your life. How truly fortunate I have been to be able to call Richard, my friend.
