  3. To my Blough Family in Conn.- We have been thinking of you during this time & wish we could be closer in travel. On behalf of mom, Ellen Blough Drouhard, she also sends her love. We all will miss Uncle Milt in our own special ways. I will never forget the time Kelley & I were playing in his car- Kelley put the car in reverse…it rolled down the driveway & slammed into the neighbors car. Uncle Milt leaped like a tiger into his car & casually parked it back onto its hilly spot. I got the spanking, not Kelley. I will always remember my ocean days, playing on the beach with Tommy, comparing sunburns & collecting seashells. Uncle Milt & Aunt Janet’s house was a fun place to be when I was a kid. Thanks. Rest in peace, Uncle Milt….I’ll miss your ornery grin.

  4. Dad, If I had known about this guestbook sooner I would have said something sooner. I don’t know whether leaving home or not coming back was harder, but whichever the case may be I never forgot you. There are so many things I would like to say but cant find the words other than I love you and will always miss you Love Your Son Butch
