I first met Milt when he was doing a motivational talk in California. We became close friends and he also became my mentor. He inspired me to reach for my own dreams. When I stayed in his home, he placed the Gold Medal in my hands. I felt a very powerful energy and shivers went through my body. I credit much of my own success to Milt's inspiring advice. He was the world's greatest athlete and he was also the world's greatest friend. Thank you Milt for your genuine friendship. Your legend will live on and the many lives you touched especially the inner city youth is what many will remember you for - a true Saint.
