ADD A MEMORY

I worked with Milton, at General Motors Parts Division, many years ago. A coworker, there, had a reputation for telling tall tales. He would look your way, motion with his hand for you to come over, and then say, "Can I ask you a question?" Anyway, Milton and I started making the same hand motions, as a joke. Unfortunately, Milton had to quit GM, for health reasons. What I was told, about his condition, was that it may eventually affect his memory. Off and on, over the years, I would test his memory. After he'd answer the phone I would say, "Can I ask you a question?" He would quickly respond with, "Hey, Mike Hartman, how are you doing?" I think the memory condition didn't apply to Milton. I never saw him lose his temper. He was a true gentleman. Milton, and my grandson, have the same nickname...except we spell his name "Sunny". Still sounds the same, though. RIP, my friend. Prayers to family and friends.
