    Dear Carl and Lori, and the family of "moo", as we remember him. He was a young boy when we knew him. A dear, dear, boy. I remember how much he enjoyed cookies I would send over, and how much we missed Moo, and the family when you all moved on with your lives. How terribly saddened we are to learn of Moo's death. Our deepest sympathy to all of you. Love, and concern, Mr.and Mrs. Pritsch

    Milt was my cousin, referred to by my brother and I as 'Moo' ever since we were kids. Our visits weren't frequent (I haven't seen Milt in 10 years), but I always looked forward to seeing him. He was a good man and fun to be around. I was saddened to hear of his death yesterday. On behalf of the Sandberg, Boyer and Sarkies families of Youngstown, Ohio and Cleveland, Ohio, I would like to extend my condolences to Lynn, Lori and Herman, Karl and Kathy, Carrie, Erik, and Erik. Whatever we called him.... Milt, Miltie or Moo - he'll be missed by us all.
