Tribute to “Milo” — 7 Comments

    • Dearest Joyce…………….I have no words to express my sadness. Certainly, my grief is for the loss of an amazingly strong and courageous human being, but for the loss of wisdom and encouragement the Milo so willingly shared.

      I feel heartbroken, but I also feel so angry that Milo had no chance to fight this dreadful condition. What a sudden and tragic loss of one of Life’s Blessings that I had the privilege to meet, in brief, on this path of recovery.

      Godspeed, Milo…………godspeed, dear, dear one………..

  1. I am speechless. Over the years, she fought “the good fight,” trying her best to help her grandson stay out of his bio mother’s clutches. Peace to Milo.

  2. yea, Gals, Milo did have an amazing store of strength and wisdom which she did willilngly share and she had an amazingly strong will to continue the fight for her grandson to have a normal life. He’s not “grown” completely now, but he’s in the teens and I think he is going to be okay now. He still has his grandfather and his good amish neighbors and friends, he does well in school so I think and pray that he will be okay. She fought tooth and nail to defend that boy from the abuse heaped on him by his mother.

    Erin Brock said to me “well, now we will have our very own angel looking out for us.” God rest her soul.

    • Holy cow………….tears are just streaming, here. What a sad loss…….but, what a courageous testament to the human soul. She accomplished a great deal, and she was always encouraging to others. Wow……..

  3. Yeas, Truthy, I’ve been crying for weeks, anticipating our loss of Milo…after the diagnosis, which came because of the tremendous pain she had in her back (the cancer turmors were tur4ning her back bones to saw dust) I knew the ultimate outcome and knew too that it wouldn’t be long, but would be painful. I started grieving for her months ago, and grieving with her. She knew from the diagnosis that it wouldn’t be long. I know it was a shock for this very independent woman to go over night so to speak into a bed-fast patient, both to her and her family, but sometimes knowing in advance gives us time to tie up loose ends emotionally and otherwise, where sudden ends like a car wreck leave us even more stunned.

    She was very fortunate to have a loving husband and sons, community and friends to support her as well as be able to say her goodbyes. My grief is purely selfish, but I am so glad that I got to know and love this remarkable woman and if I come to a place where I don’t know what to do, I’ll just ask myself “what would Milo do?” and then I’ll know the answer.
