The remembrance of Mr. Millet I submitted yesterday contained the incorrect photo, so I am including the correct one here. FDM would have have been understandably disapppointed that I did not proofread my entry more carefully before handing it in...

In reflecting about how to best express the lasting impact that Mr. Millet had on the life of a thirteen-year-old son of a scallop fisherman from Castine, Maine by offering the boy admission to Milton in 1972, I realized that I had already previously expressed my most heartfelt sentiments on this topic earlier this year. Hence, I would like to share the inscription that I wrote on the back of a framed tribute (a photo of which accompanies these words) to his life that I gave him on the occasion of his 100th birthday:

May 25, 2017

Dearest Mr. Millet,

On this singularly special day, please know that I am thinking of you, as I do many, many times during the course of each year. Because you are a person who truly touched my life in a most wonderful way, you are never far from my mind . . . or heart. And I know that I am but one of a myriad of Milton graduates who feel the same way.

As you reflect about this memorable milestone on The Road of Life, I hope you take significant satisfaction in knowing that your life's work has profoundly impacted not only the education of so many young people, but literally their entire lives. Although I can obviously only speak directly for myself, I can tell you that I have had numerous discussions over the last four decades with many Milton graduates who have expressed similar sentiments to my own.

So, sir, on this auspicious day, please know that my mind and heart hearken back to something I expressed to you a quarter of a century ago on the April 11, 1992 occasion that honored your 75th birthday and 50 years at Milton. Indeed, as you now celebrate your 100th birthday and 75 years at Milton, twenty-five years have passed and I still cannot come up with any better way to capture the essence of how I view one Francis D. Millet in my mind's eye than to reiterate the following:

The most lasting lesson that I came away from Milton with was about a subject that was not offered in any specific course, but was constantly being taught throughout the campus and the curriculum character. For me, Milton Academy, as an institution, symbolizes that word. Mr. Francis D. Millet, as a human being, is the personification of character.

Happy 100th Birthday!

With immense respect, eternal gratitude, and endless love,

Milton Academy lost an outstanding gentleman. His strong support for our family over many years was very much appreciated. He will be missed by all of us. Andy Ward
