Al, I was very saddened to hear of the passing of your Dad, he was such a warm and kind gentleman, I always enjoyed speaking with him and learning about the Town of Milton in the "early" years.

Remember, those we love are never gone, as they live in our hearts forever.

Please extend my deepest sympathies to your sisters and their families.
