So sorry to hear about your dad. I always think about my mom telling me he helped us move to Bulverde, the shortstop days when he played for Pearl and with my dad, and Pearl picnics. The cotton tops are thinking of you.

Donna, Elaine and Don and the entire family Michelle and I just can't tell you how sad we are to hear of the loss of Milton. I remember all the good times we had especially when he would play the trombone or what ever it was you could hear him all over the neighborhood. Our thoughs and prayer are with you all.
