To the family of Milt. I am so sorry for your loss of such a wonderful man. I met Milt when I worked at Educators Mutual Life Insurance Company in the 1980’s. I always enjoyed talking with him. Some of my family went to the same church as he did, the late Melva White (my Grandmother) and the late Dick and Pearl Poole (my Great Aunt and Uncle). They would always say how nice he was too. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

With sympathy,
Deb Metzger
