Milt shared in so much of my life growing up. When we moved to Appleton back in 1985, he was one of my first and closest friends here, making the neighborhood so warm and welcoming. He was my First Communion sponsor, a big fan at baseball games, a special guest joining my wife and I all the way out in Oregon for our wedding just a few years ago. He was always there for us. I will remember Milt for his warm heart and wonderful sense of humor, for the many incredible Packer stories and the kind, gentle soul that was his. It's so difficult to say goodbye today but I feel blessed to move forward with a lifetime of memories and a friendship that made me a better person, with so much richer a life. To all his family, you have my absolute deepest and most heartfelt condolences. A new life awaits you now, Milt. We entrust God to look after you forever and always the way you did for us during our shared journey here in this life. You are family, you are loved and now you are home.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Dear Joanne and family, All thoughts and sympathy from the Delforge family from Wallonia Belgium are with you today September 8.

We are all with you in these difficult hours, days and months. Kisses, take care of you and family, Francoise, Jean-Louis, Jean-Pascal, Lionel and Nathalie
RENAUT DELFORGE Francoise left a message on September 7, 2010:
Dear Clyde, You have only left the one side of the ocean for the other one, ahead of us. Nice image, comforting words to provide us with a reassuring feeling of continuity. We are grateful to the name Delforge which brought you to Walhain with Joanne to complete your genealogy. This was the start of an exceptional relationship with at the height Jean-Pascal’s stay in Wisconsin in August 2001. In addition to the pictures in Belgium, we were so pleased to receive pictures of the two of you travelling to Lake Michigan, Texas, Florida, Iceland …You were definitely the witness of decades which showed phenomenal progress including the first step on the moon. Living in a quiet place of USA with your dear wife, relatives and friends. I am convinced you now rest in peace. Be sure that we will remain close to Joanne. C’est seulement un “au revoir”, Francoise.

Dear Joanne and Family, The deep sadness of Clyde's departure shouldn't be strong enough to hide the pleasure of having known him and shared his life and fantastic mood. People never go as long as they remain in our memory. My mind is full of beautiful pictures of his smile, friendship and a few walloon words that he was repeating with fun. I will never forget him. He was and will continue to be in my heart and in my prayers. Jean-Louis Delforge

Dear Joanne, We will never forget Clyde and his friendly smile, such a wonderful men. It was so nice to listen him speaking walloon but not french. I'll never forget the opportunity that you've given to me to visit wisconsin. It's the reason why I've got such english. Clyde will stay always alive in my heart. The first of August (date of my arrival in 2001) will stay an anniversary to celebrate his memory. He will be with me during all my future rides on my Harley. It's painful to be so far of you. Love Nathalie & JP
