Milton was my husband, sweetheart, prayer partner, protector, and friend for 18 years. We shared in a love for our Savior Jesus Christ and the spread of His Gospel. We shared many, many good times in those years. Our home is empty without him, and I'm going thru some very difficult days. I miss him terribly. Our dog, Cocoa, used to follow him like his shadow, and she keeps looking for him. I can face tomorrow knowing that he is with Jesus, and that we will meet again on that great Resurrection Morning when the "Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord" (1Thess. 4:16-17). I love you, Milton, and as always, Jesus Bless You!

In one of our seminary classes we learned that the purposes of a funeral service include the following:  (1) honoring the memory of the person who has passed away; (2) comforting those who are bereaved; (3) challenging all those who are present in dealing with the present and preparing for the future; (4) to realize that such occasions are opportunities to worship God;
and (5) to witness for the Word of God in which we can find faith, hope, and love in Jesus Christ our Messiah, Savior and Lord. Amen.

We have been acquainted with Milton and his wife Gloria Bodnar-Figueroa and other members of the family for quite a few years. Much of our mutual contacts were through various aspects and activities of the ministry of the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. We join with family members in sensing the loss of Milton that his loved ones and friends are grieved over at this time.
However, our loss is Milton's gain, for the Bible assures us that to be "absent from the body is to be present with the Lord" for those who are redeemed. May the Spirit of God comfort and encourage all of us on the journey ahead.

Milton was a precious soul, to us, Dave and Margie Brischler,  and so many other people that he ministered to in the community.  As for Dave and I we will miss his good humor and wonderful dishes he prepared for us whenever we visited.  Most of all, he was my son in the Lord Jeshua and he was devoted to  The Lord of us all. He will be dearly missed but we will always be joined together in The Holy Spirit. We look forward to the day when we will meet again face to face. Till then Milton we love you: rest peacefully in The Lord.
