Mrs. Tipps and family,
Although it’s been years since I have seen you all, I have thought of you often. I’ll never forget Mr. Tipps running the service station below us on N. Morgan Ave. Mr. Tipps was a very nice man.
My condolences to the family. May God bless you all during this time.

Ruby, I am so sorry about Milton. He was a wonderful man, and we had so many laughs with him at the Food Fair in Tullahoma. My thoughts are with you and the family at this time. I will be sending a contribution to the Trinity Day Care Center in Tullahoma, in Milton’s name.

God Bless!

I was so sad when I read this about Carl, he was great
person to work for many years ago at SCI in Huntsville, Al.
He spoke of his family often and mentioned Ruby a lot. He was always so funny and the last time I saw him was the day he retired at SCI, he left all of us crying because he left.I wandered about him a lot, looks like he lived a good life. So sorry for your loss and Ruby you may remember me, its been a long time. God bless you all.

Dear Ruby,

I am so sorry to hear of Milton’s passing. I did not get word of this until January 2, thus past the service time.

All of us Gowen’s had the best regards for Milton, you and your family. We were so appreciative as you were at most of our family functions and with us in sorrowful times too. I am so sorry that I missed the service.

Please let me know if I can assist you in any way.

So sorry to read about the loss of Milton. I know you and the family are in the sad state now but knowing that he will end up at the best of the best places for eternity should be a comfort. He was always one of my favotire guys from many years gone by.
