So sorry to hear of Milt's passing. His smile and gentle nature will surely be missed in our community. Milt & Belle were neighbors of my mom (Jessie). So touching how they they all watched out for each other over the years. Sending our love, friendship and sympathy to all of Milt's family. Jerry & Carol Greenwood
