I am so sorry to see Milt go. He was a good friend who leaves behind a legacy of kindness, generosity and unrivaled good humor. He and I would spend many hours together at both his house and mine attempting to solve the problems of the world. Milt was one of a kind and the best neighbor anyone could be blessed to have. I will miss you Milt. Peter
