Nancy, I am so sorry to hear this. Milton was like a big brother to me. I first met him in '59 when I started with Vepco in Norfolk. We eventually transferred to Richmond and I went to work in Customer Relations. When we moved to 14th floor at OJRP Milton and I worked on the same floor. It was such a joy being reunited with my old friend, sharing old memories and lots of laughs! He was a dear friend and I have thought about him a lot over the years. May God comfort your heart. Love you, Nell Little
