We so enjoyed Milton. We felt very blessed that he and Karen had 8 years together.

We're sure that he'll have a full dance card in heaven.

Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you

Milt was one of my favorites! He always promised to take me for a ride in his shiny red car...I will miss his smile and his visits. May you hold great memories of him in your hearts forever.
Peace be with you.
