  2. Barbara, I am so sorry to hear about Milton. I have known Milton as long as I can remember. Phil and I weren’t old enough to pal around with Milton, Royce Reeves, or Paul Lempke. I remember once when we were young Milton shot himself in the hand with a pellet rifle and him and Royce Reeves were walking up and down the alley digging the pellet out, afraid to tell his mother, Hazel. Remember the good times and fond memories Barbara, and I know there were many through the years . Milton would want that.
    Barbara, you are in our thoughts and prayers.
