Richard. Though we never met, please accept my sympathy for your Dad's passing. He and my Mom, Clara Shafer Adams, were first cousins. My fondest memory of him was in 1959 when he took my Dad and me to the NFL championship in Baltimore. I last saw him at my Mom's 90th party in 2000. He was one of the good guys.

To Richie (although I don't definitely recall if that was your preferred nickname),

I was very sorry to hear of Milt's passing. I'm almost 65 and, with great fondness, recall and "picture" your dad from when I was a little boy. In those days, my dad (Louis "Nutter" Kaletsky, who died in 1970) and yours were very close friends. I remember meeting you about 55 years ago-- probably at our house on Bellevue Road in New Haven. I called your dad when I heard of Bonnie's passing. I'm testing my memory here, but seem to recall her middle name was Eden. Naturally, I recall (also with fondness) Francis, and Evelyn (who I saw perform in THE FIFTH SEASON; I believe that was at the JCC in New Haven). Of course, I think of the Licaris, including when your dad "made the news" with Red, who the radio referred to as "Francis Licari" (pronouncing it like Lissary). Then there was a time that I was watching movie credits (maybe close to a quarter century ago)and telling my friend Steve (who remembered your dad) that you were a carpenter working on movies. Within about 30 seconds of my statement (I am not exaggerating), there was your name on the screen. I helped someone locate some Kogons a few years ago, when Julie was about to be inducted into the CT Boxing Hall of Fame. I'm also thinking of Chuck's and Legion Avenue.

Again, I extend my sympathy. I smile when thinking of your dad.
