So sorry for your loss

So sorry May God keep you in his arms always thank you for your beautiful smile and always so kind Lester from the Missouri slopes

Sending much love to all of you! I have many fond memories of hanging out at your house on Berwyn when I was young. with love Sunita

Sincere condolences from my mom, the rest of the Lein family and, of course, Carla and I. Milo was a guy I really looked up to. I thoroughly enjoyed it when he and family would return to Wing on vacation, and I would go across the street and play with the kids. Sometimes I’d hang around the adults and talk sports. I was thoroughly enjoyed when I found out Milo and Gussie would return to North Dakota for retirement. They even attended my wedding to Carla! Again, to Gussie and to the rest of the family, God bless as you mourn this great man, and know that others mourn with you.
