|Let the memory of Milton be with us forever|
"I can still hear the excitement in his voice and my mother's too whenever they saw each other and that hearty laugh of his. Rest on Angel...Missed terribly"
"TODAY MILTON WOULD HAVE BEEN 80 YEARS OLD. WISH HE COULD BE HERE SO WE COULD SHARE THIS MILESTONE."
"Milton was one of a kind type person. He will be forever missed. He was my boss, my friend, my advisor, my Godfather. Loved him much and missing him more."
"Gone but never forgotten! What an AWESOME Godfather! Miss you more than ever! RIP
"Four years have not reduced the impact of 10/10/10. My view of life has been forever broadened because of the twenty-seven years of marriage to Milton. His achievements and the risks he took were remarkable. I have gained in appreciation for living life to its fullest.
He will forever be missed by those of us who had the opportunity to fully know him."
"I miss Milton's Santa Clause laugh, his honesty and opinions on love, peace and happiness. Such a very wise man. To me he was my father by heart. I truly miss a dear friend."
"May your soul rest in paradise.Just thinking you are among all of the rest of the family that has gone before and after you celebrating. I really miss that big laugh."
"My dear Milton, I have such wonderful memories of your birthdays. My favourite includes celebrating with your Goddaughter Crystal and the wonderful parties we shared!"
"Milton joined our family when he married our cousin Carolyn Fitchett. My sister Kay and I enjoyed a warm relationshp with them, including lively discussions about politics and education. After Carolyn died in 1981, Milton remained our cousin. I particularly appreciated his moral support when I was executive director of ASALH. Kay and I always remember Milton's reflections and friendship."
"One of the things I learned from the years spent with Milton is that is no path in a real relationship is free of conflict. How two people work through these inevitable challenges will reveal the caring and strength that lay behind their commitment. This is true in love and friendship. Rest In Peace."
"I am blessed to have Known Milton as my boss as well as a friend. My father passed away when I was only 19 years old. So I considered Milton as my father by HEART. I will miss his wisdom and Santa Clause laughter. He will NEVER be forgotten. Thank you Milton, I love and miss you!"
"Your wisdom lives on Milty! Smiles on your birthday! We will remember you ALL WAYS AND FOREVER!
Larry says, "may the politics of love always be with Uncle Milton!""
"Happy 78th Birthday Milton! I added the photos taken at the Memorial Dinner in December 2010 at a Washington D.C. steakhouse. Milton requested that in lieu of a formal memorial service and funeral that Gregory and I get together with a few of his closest and dearest friends and have a great dinner to celebrate his wonderful life and that is what we did!"
"It's hard to believe that it has been two years. I will always remember the fun times we all shared, the long talks some serious and some just plain fun. Will remember the Bar-b-cue runs which became a tradition for our gang of friends. You will always be remembered and a special friend."
"As the time passes since we were last together, I realize more and more how much my husband's friendship and love has meant to my life. I miss his wonderful smile, his laughter, the good times and even the bad times. I remember you today and always."
"My dearest forever friend Milty, your spirit truly lives on! What a blessing to have known you! There aren't enough words to explain how much you meant to me and how much I miss you. At such a time as this....you saw beyond the skies....I am reminded of your strength. And I carry on! Thank you Adrienne for a memory-tribute. With love, Marty"
"I miss my beloved Godfather so much. For nearly 50 years he was friend/Godfather/Advisor/mentor/confidant.His passing has created a vast emptiness but the memories of happy days & laughs will never die! How fitting to listen to My Way, my late husband's theme song as I write!RIP!"
"Dearest Milton, You will long be remembered by me and my family. You taught us so much about so many things by being so true to being Milton. Your spirit lives on forever; we smile, and our hearts have been touched by you. Love you, Milty! Marty and the Bond family."

He will be sorely missed by all."
"My Dear Cousin Milton.....
It sadden my heart to have heard about Milton's homegoing weeks later. Having only just reunited with him through a by chance discovery of someone who knew him who just happen to put me in touch with Milton through Andrienne. It was a pleasure to have been able to reconnect to Milton after so many years. Thanks Andrienne for the reconnection and God Bless"
"Milton was a dear man, a unique spirit, and we will miss him terribly. God bless you and all the smiles you left in this life.

"Although, I did not have much communication and contact with cousin Milton growing up. our grandmother had a graduation picture of him. I felt very close to him. The many times, I saw Milton, he always had a big smile and friendly conversations. He was a busy person and it was hard to keep in touch with him. He wii always be loved and remembered. Cousin: Mildred B. Hubbard----New Orleans, LA"
"I was blessed to have Milton as a friend and confidant for over 35 years. I am a Democrat and Milton was a Republican but we shared many common enduring values:the importance of the viability of public education; equal opportunity for all students, and fairness and equal justice for all people.
Arthur Jefferson, Supt. Emeritus, Detroit Public Schools"
"Milton's spirit will forever live in my heart. I am honored to have served as the Public Relations Coordinator for the Council of 100 under Milton. He taught me so much and he gave me numerous opportunities to use my skills. One day I will write about the Council and Milton's leadership will front and center of my book. Thank God for the gift of MB. Silver Spring, MD"
"I got to know Milton when I became an officer of the Council of 100, and learned a great deal about Republican politics from him. He was a real political warrior or a stalwart as they say. His legacy will never be forgotten. Just think of all he did without the technology of today . . . e-mail, iPhones and online capability to reach hundreds and thousands. Brenda Alford, Silver Spr MD"
"I knew Milton when we were interns in the Ford Foundation IEL program in Washington, DC, 1969-70. He was a great colleague and leader even then, and a friend. He led the group on a trip to Chicago and got us into the Chicago Conspiracy Trial, and we met Jesse Jackson at Operation Breadbasket. We had many wonderful adventures together in the IEL program. I will miss him greatly. He was a great man."
"Although I have only known Milton for a brief time, I am truly impressed with his legacy. He was a great man and I am proud to have made his acquaintance.
"This is just what cuz Milton would've ordered, I love this tribute.I truly will and already miss the phone conversations my Mom, he and I had but I will never forget them, along with that big hearty laugh of his. I love me some Milton Bins."
