    What I remember and appreciate most about Milton is sitting with him various times listening to him share the joy of how Christ had been working in his life.

    We will always remember Milton’s smile and chuckle. He was proud of his family and his job with the city. We would see him often on his porch or his neighbor’s porch. He would throw us a big wave and smile as we rode by and blew the horn.

    I cherish the conversations we had. His smile and laughter were infectious. The love he had for his family was apparent. The hope he had in Christ was openly shared. We will one day meet again my friend.

    The one thing that we remember about Milton is his warm smile and infectious laugh. He had such a strong love for his family and was so proud of them. Milton was honest and clear in his desire to serve and follow Christ. It’s through this we can find peace in knowing where our brother is and that we will see him again. Praying for the family as you walk this road of healing. Love, The Laguitan Family
