Hi Pam, I just came across your fathers obituary and felt compelled to let you and your family know that I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your dad. Your father treated me like family back when we were dating many years ago. I'm sure he will be surely missed. Sincerely Calvin Padula

I am very sorry to hear about Milt's death. My father (Robert Sheppard) and Milt were first cousins and had many conversations about the family history which my father enjoyed very much. I also had discussions with Milt about our ancestors and found him very generous with information. I know he will be missed very much by his family and friends,
