Milton will surely be missed. for as long as I can remember, he has always been in our Family from an early age. He stayed with my family when his Daddy wanted to play cards. the only time he was not there is when he went to the military. I will miss you laughing at something silly. Milton my friend take your rest in heaven, you are free now. Rita Williams

My brother, Milton Crosby May not have been my biological brother but he was my brother in spirit. We were raised together as siblings & we called my grandmother Candy Mitchell MAMA! She raised me, Milton, Frances & Charles Mitchell as though we were HER children. She NEVER faulted in her duties as our guardian. We all turned out to be productive citizens and I know we made her proud. Milton was and ALWAYS will be loved & missed by our family. We know his soul is in heaven and I just want EVERYONE to know that MILTON CROSBY fought the good fight, but God said he he doesn't have to fight anymore. No more pain, just PEACE. Thank you God for letting us enjoy DIP for 62 years. Pamela Mitchell Sister
