We are sending our deepest sympathies for the loss of your dad, grandpa and husband. I remember the first time I met him, we stopped over at his house....he was so glad to see Steve and Sheri and had such a twinkle in his eye. He was a quiet man, but deeply loved his family. We are keeping you in our thoughts and prayers during this time of loss. Love and hugs, Doug & Maureen Sytsma & Family

We lost our mother, Mary Deisenroth Milner, Carolyn's aunt, just over a year ago. We did some growing up together. All the Milner's share the loss of John. Bill Milner
