Dear Leslie, Alan and Philip: Please accept my condolences and heartfelt sympathy on the passing of your Father. I remember in 1972m when I first got married, I went down to Best Jeweler's and purchased a wedding ring. At that time I had only enough money to pay for 1/2 and because of the relationship of our families, he let me pay it out in 6 payments. I cannot ever remember when that wonderful man didn't have a smile on his face. Our mothers were best friends and Mah Jong buddies and all my mother would talk about was how classy your mom and dad were and that she wished all people emulated them. Your Dad will be greatly missed, not only by those that knew him, but by the whole world, which he held in his own hands. May his memory be a blessing to all that knew your father and we pray that God gives him everlasting peace.

What a beautiful obituary to a wonderful man. I was fortunate when I first started working at Jaymar-Ruby in 1986 to meet Anita. She became a close friend and confidant. Through her I met Milty. They looked so sweet together and I cant help but think that they are holding hands in paradise. My thoughts and prayers are with Leslie, Alan, Phillip and their families. Your parents were very special people.

As I get older, I find myself reading the obits. I read that your dad/grandpa had passed. In reading about his life, I feel that I would have liked him. I am so sorry for the loss of this wonderful man. I will keep you in my prayers.

I treated Milton many times as a physical therapist in Michigan City. He always had a smile and brightened the day despite his status at the time. All of what is written in the obituary is so true. He was a blessing to this world and made a positive change to lives that he touched. May I extend my sincere condolences. Suzannah
