October 06, 2015 "Mark,

I'm a bit tardy with my condolences, but want you to know that I am still thinking about you, Katie and Milo. I was struck by one of the many online tributes where Milo was being interviewed and made the statement to the effect that, "Once a good friend, always a good friend and you don't forget good friends!" If there was ever a person who lived by that code, it was Milo Hamilton. As you may recall, after my parents were married, their first apartment here in Fairfield was across the street from Milo's family home. Milo was a freshman at Fairfield High School. I'll always remember him telling me that when he saw my folks, he thought they were a couple of movie stars moving in across the street. He loved my folks and they loved Milo! Milo would always gather my folks and all his great Fairfield friends each time he came to Fairfield. I always thought we should take him to dinner, but oh, no, Milo insisted on picking up the tab. As "the kid", I was so lucky to have been included in that group and to hear all the stories. What is so special to me is that when my dad was ill and passed in February 2014, Milo called me at least a dozen times to check on Mom and then called several times after Mom passed this past March to check on me. I know how busy he was, even in retirement, but he never forgot a good friend! I'll bet we talked for an hour and a half on that last call. We talked about hunting quail, growing up in Fairfield and various friends and family, the Hawkeyes, Astros, and on and on! As you said, Mark, cherish those conversations! And do I ever!!! He never forgot any good friend, no matter how busy he was! I will miss very much hearing my cell ring and seeing his number pop up with his booming voice on the other end, "Is this the Fairfield Flash?!?!" followed by totally enjoyable conversations! It always makes me smile!

Fairfield, Houston and the world lost a dear friend with a huge and caring heart, generous with is time and money and a guy, who I might add, was incredibly fun and funny! We're all going to miss you very much, Milo! TG (Fairfield, Iowa)"
October 06, 2015 "My love for baseball was fostered by the play-by-play voices who made it real, and Milo was the best. Years later, I was thrilled to meet him for dinner at the Pfister Hotel in Milwaukee--the first of many meals we would share over the next decade. It was a pleasure to call him a friend, and he will forever be a legendary Hawkeye. On Iowa! Go Astros! Jeff Liebermann, Iowa City IA" - Jeff Liebermann (Iowa City, IA)
September 30, 2015 "Estimada familia siento mucho la situación que están pasando. Por esa razon me gustaría compartir esta maravillosa promesa que nos da la Biblia en Revelación" 21;3,4"Con eso, oí una voz fuerte desde el trono decir: Mira! La tienda* de Dios está con la humanidad, y él residirá* con ellos, y ellos serán sus pueblos. Y Dios mismo estará con ellos. 4 Y limpiará toda lágrima de sus ojos, y la muerte no será más, ni existirá ya más lamento ni clamor ni dolor. Las cosas anteriores han pasado. así que volveremos aver a Milo en mundo nuevo." - Kenia Rivera (Orlando, FL)
