Milt was a wonderful friend to Ron and I. I remember one time Ron needed a truck to haul something. Milt offered his right away. Even though it was an older truck, Milt took very good care of it. Ron was a little concerned about using it. Everything turned out fine.

Ron discipled Milt at the same time I was discipling Sue, in another room at our house. There were several times when Sue and I had to stop because Ron and Milt we're laughing. They were great buddies!

I'm sure Ron was there to greet Milt, when he arrived in Heaven. They are probably hanging around together now.

Uncle Milt never wavered in his love for my Aunt Suzie and their blended families. He was always quick witted, smiling and loving. My wish is that Uncle Milt is in Jesus's arms and without any of the pain he courageously suffered in this life. My love and prayers go out to my Aunt Suzie, my cousins and their families. Love to you all.
