  3. Dear Angie, Richie, and Connie, I’m very sorry to hear of the passing away of Mr. Milbert. Mr. Milbert seemed like he was such a likable man that always looked for the good in people. It was always such a pleasure for me to pass him up running and say hi to him. May God be with you and all of the rest of his family right now as you pass through this time of hardship.

  4. Connie, I am so sorry to hear about your loss. I did not even know that he was sick. If you need anything at all please just call. God Bless you and your family. Sherri Logoyda

  7. Connie I am so sorry I could not be there at the end. Dick was a wonderful friend and neighbor. Your loving , tender care of him was was simply the best care one could give, from your heart. love Donna

  8. Connie, So many prayers go out to you and your family. Find comfort in God’s love. You know my heart. HUGs Ellie

  9. So very sorry to hear of your loss. Dick and I joined the service together in 1960. The last time I saw Dick was at the Air Force base in Dover, Delaware. I didn’t know where he was living, and I just learned today of his passing. With us living so close, I wish I would have known sooner where he was. You have our deepest sympathy.

  10. Connie and family, Words cannot tell you how sorry I am to hear about Richard. You have all been through so much. Connie knows me from our little group of “ependy-mama’s”, but I want the rest of you to know how much both of your parents have changed my life. They got me started in the online support group, and without them, believe me, I would not be surviving this horror as well as I am. My husband is suffering from this same disease. For the past several years, Connie and Richard have kept me sane. I owe them more than I could ever repay. May Richard now rest in peace, and may God keep watch over Connie and the rest of your family. I love you, Connie, Julie
