Dear Anne and Family, Milt loved the gift of life and fought valiantly with your strong support to live more years with us than was expected. I am so glad that he did not linger long in severe pain. We know that Milt would want us to be strong and to continue to appreciate God's gift of life by enjoying and using well whatever time we have left. Your greatest treasure is your loving family. God bless you all. Call on your friends for any help we may be able to give. That is what friends are for.
