Milton - Greetings from Idaho. I came across your website through a friend. God Bless You - I do hope we'll meet someday - but I'll only be buying a diet cola as I'm diabetic... a small inconvenience compared to what you've turned into a tremendous blessing.

Hey Milton, This is a great website ! It's always fun to stop by and comment on current events with you. You are one of the main reasons why Orange Avenue is such a great street. Glad to know you for many years. Looking forward to talking with you many more. (Tony, formerly of RK & C and currently @ OUC)

Hello, I'm a film student at UCF and right now am in the process of getting ideas together for a documentary. I came across Milton's card and went to this website and think that he has a great story and would love to do a documentary on him for my class project and share his story on film.  If he is interested I would love to talk to him more about this, thanks!

I read Lisa's request for a computer for Milton. Baker Barrios Architects has a used Dell 8200 with a monitor.  Our tech guy is going to get it fixed up the first part of next week and I will deliver it to his home.

Milton, you are so awesome! Your background and story are so great. I see Will Smith starring in the movie of your life! You are more than an inspiration to me when I walk downtown. You give me courage by example. I'm always concerned about you and hope you are doing well. It's heartwarming to know that you are surrounded by friends and family. When I saw you not too long ago on a social excursion downtown with your children I saw what a beautiful family you have! I love you and forever wish you the best!

When you come to Wall Street right before I work security on the weekends and I see you having a great time and keeping young with your laughs.  Its great to finally meet and know someone else that always remain positive and keep smiling no matter what. Dont be a stranger and I really appreciate you giving me your card to get to know better. God Bless

Hey Milton!!  I was so happy to see you today! Our guy from Chicago finally won! Can you believe it? He's the Democratic nominee!  If he comes back to Orlando, I'm buying you a ticket to the event! Have a great day.

As a Security officer for Valencia Community College Downtown I have known Milton since 1996 now just seeing his presense and showing his love towards all who has stopped and chat with Milton is what keeps Milton going through these summer heats and even those cold and windy days on the corner of Church & Pine street of downtown.  May God Bless you Milton... you have a big heart, that goes a long way. Love your friend and brother in christ

Please help if you can. I recently learned that my/our friend Milton doesn't have a working computer to access this wonderful website. His computer (which is outdated) bit the dust. He has a desk and a DSL/cable connection just waiting for a new or gently used computer and screen. I would love for him to also have a wireless mouse and keyboard for ease of use.We need to give Milton access to the Web and his website from the comfort of his home? I can only imagine the multitude of  conversations I/we will have with him once he is re-connected with the Web. Does anyone have connections or resources to have a computer system donated to Milton? I am inquiring of mine. Thank you.

It's been over 15 years since I've lived in Orlando, but I still remember how you lifted my spirits each time we crossed paths. My aunt Sharon and I are huge fans of yours! Keep spreading the LOVE! And if you're ever headed west, please come see me in Denver! Peace and God bless!

Hey, Milton! This site is great, my friend. Love the pictures... but we need to get some more of them up here. I say we make an effort to post a complete photographic record of you and all your friends. You're practically an ambassador to the City Beautiful - you need some VIP shots! Kris and I will be back in Philadelphia this summer - we'll be thinking of you and hometown Philly!

Milton, What an awesome site!  How great that these friends are so talented - this is a great witness!!  I leave for Italy Sunday night at 8pm and get back late June.  Please continue to pray and lift my singing and teaching opportunity up (as we talked today!) and I will continue to lift this website and you up to God.I praise God for you, friend!
