Henry and Family- I used to work with your dad, "Mutzi," uncle Al and Zede Harry, at the market on Pleasant Street...50 yrs ago. He had his law office there. I saw him a couple of times on my trips back to Worcester over the years to visit my cousins, the Silvers. He was one of my favorite people, a real Mensch. Sorry for your loss.
My condolences to the Raphaelson family. I grew up with Milton (Mutzi) in Worcester and unfortunately haven't seen him but for two or three times in the past 70 plus years, but I never forgot him. He was that kind of guy. The world is a better place for him having been in it. I will continue to rmmber and think of him.
A great guy an old friend
As his colleague in Springfield District Court, I was pleased to work with Milt Raphaelson all those years ago--always loved talking with him. One of the good guys, now gone. My condolences to his family and myriad friends. . . .

Sending prayers, comfort and healing to the family. In the darkest hour the soul is replenished and given strength to carry on. I have fond memories of Milton that I will never forget.

Hi, Laurie: I just read that Milton passed away. He was a great man and I have many memories of him when I worked at Glickman & Fuller way back when. I am sitting here remembering the fun times at Glickman & Fuller and especially when he got Rebel and Rebel would sit by my desk in the basement of the firm, and I would take him for a walk at lunch. I thought of it when I read about Bo-Bo and knowing what an animal lover Milton was. My condolences to all of you at this very difficult time. Milton truly was a special person. Mary Caforio

Judge Raphaelson was one of the very best judges I every practiced before. He was compassionate and a truth teller. People who work in the courts would greatly benefit from studying his approach to the law and to how he handled the cases before him.

Dear Henry, Laurie and Jeffrey. My sincere condolences at the loss of your father. I often sat in his courtroom when I worked at the Worcester County Courthouse. He called it like he saw it.
