    I’m so thankful for the time that you shared with Helen and our family. We enjoyed many holidays together. You will certainly be missed.

    I was very sorry to see the news about Milton’s death. I knew him both as a fellow lawyer and as a history buff in historical organizations we were in but had lost track of Milton in recent years. He was a friend and I will miss him. My condolences to the family. He will be missed I am sure about all who knew him

    I had known Milton at least 20 years, so the pictures of his younger days were of special interest. He supported me as a compatriot and friend. Let him rest under the shade across the river.

    You have loved me like no one else . You are my sweetheart , my husband, my best friend!
    May God hold you in his loving arms until we meet again. I do miss you so very much,
    but I know you are at home in Heaven and have no more pain and suffering to endure. So many of your friends came to say good-bye. You are loved by all those you touched with your wit ,
    your affability, and your kindness. You said you wanted me to be happy , and that was
    the case in our marriage and our courtship. Thank you for being my husband and my love.
    Rest in Peace ,Milton. I will love you always…

    MiltonE! You said your recording buddies called you that. We had some good times in Nashville, you and me and Helen. We went out to eat with Glenn; and we went to the Nashville Station Inn and heard your banker play. We watched one of Helen’s alma maters, Iowa, play in a bowl game at a downtown bar. The three of us took walks around Radnor Lake; and we ate at Sperry’s and The Picnic. I was Helen’s maid of honor at your wedding, and I’m pretty sure we were some of the last big groups to eat in that Cajun place down by Vanderbilt. So many things I got to share with you because Helen was my friend and you were her husband.

    You are in a lovely place now, Milton, and you know that so many people miss you. I’ll always remember you especially when I’m in Nashville.
