Betty, and family. I'm very sorry to hear about Milt's passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you. I know your children won't remember me, but knowing and working with Milt, was one of, if not the most, interesting and enjoyable times of my life. They were years I will never forget! People come, and people go. But some special people leave a lasting impression. Milt was one of those. We will all remember him for years to come, that, I'm sure of. Again, my condolences. Ernie
