I will always remember how much love you & Jo shared-it was such a beautiful thing. I will always remember your kindness-helping me cut boards, changing a broken light bulb & assembling a bike for Livy for me one Easter. I'll remember the laughs at all of the get together. I'll remember you as one of the kindest people I've known.

My brother Milton,
We shared the same father named Charles. I didn't get to grow up with you and I know I missed something great by the way everyone who did grow up with you talked about you. You were a loving father to your children. When we met years ago I could tell you were a strong and kind person. Words can't express how much sympathy I have for your family and the pain they feel. Through eternity you rest and in memory you live. Goodbye brother.
