Remembering Milton

When my mom started dialysis in Kutztown, we always saw Milton in the morning when she had her sessions. He was always very friendly and upbeat, even on the days when you knew he wasn't feeling so well. Even though we only knew him from dialysis, he was such a great guy to talk to on occasion. My family and I offer our prayers and condolences to the family at this time. We will miss him dearly...

What I will miss the most were those days I would walk the five doors down and sit on "the bench" with Milt and talk about the Phillies. The conversation would then drift into memories the "days" and how much the world had changed. Listening to Milt was a wonderful experience. To hear him speak and laugh about so many subjects never once with a negative point of view or even a detrimental fluctuation in his voice concerning anyone or anything left me with a much lighter heart and a better understanding of how life should be lived. Although those talks have come to an end the memories and enlivenment of those conversations shall always stay with me. I will miss you Milt. I'm sure your dancing and cutting a rug with Darlene now. God Bless you both.
