Milt, you are loved by so many...


Milton O. Fletcher

It is never easy to put something like this up... Especially when you've talked to the person frequently over the last 3+ years.  I didn't know Milt as well as some of the other folks, but what I did know about him and of him, he was a kind hearted soul.  A Grandfather and Father to all, the man would give his ear and his heart to anyone that needed it.

Milt was the proud patriarch (in my opinion) of the Help Chat rooms on AOL.  Always around, joking with us... sometimes playing a joke, but just there helping out, livening up the room with his with and humor.  His charm was like any, he knew how to treat people with respect... even the troublesome kids that graced the chat room from time to time, they all seemed to respect Milt.

Milt had a dry sense of humor at times, a bit on the wild side.  But when you needed him the most, he was there.  He was pretty savvy with computers and would help out where he could.  I am sorry, but I am just at a total loss for words.  Anytime someone leaves us, it's always too early.....

From Milt's profile:  "People are down on what they ain't up on"

From Milt's daughter, Mary:
"Thank you for asking about Zoey. I think she is very confused and depressed. She loved my dad and was forever grateful that he rescued her from the Humane Society. If anyone is interested, in fact, instead of flowers memorials may be made to Foothills Humane Society 989 Little Mountain Road Columbus, NC 28722. That is where he found his little dog after his beloved dog Henry died. Please share this information with his other online friends. My sister is planning to take Zoey home with her to Virginia. She will give Zoey lots of love and a good home."

Milt, here's one to take with you, Sir.

Enjoy your new home, but know that you will so sorely be missed here.  You've touched more people than any of us will ever know about.

Oh man, Milt...I just now found out, so I know you'll forgive this late goodbye.

You will be missed. But I think that I'll borrow this, if I may, for my new sigline on the message boards:

'From Milt's profile: "People are down on what they ain't up on" '

You're at peace now, so may God bless those you left behind.

Mo.. Milty (even though I know ya didnt like that nickname, I'll alwyas remember you by it).. I read the posts about all your friends you left behind when you went to That Better Place.. and I choke up. You were the grandfather of AOL Help.. the grandfather to us all. I think I speak for us all..

We Love You Milt, and we will Never, ever forget you.

You're in our thoughts, hearts, minds, and souls forever, bud. I miss you.

On 23-Nov-2000, Tommy from NC...
I, like everyone else will miss MO. I was so busy learning from all you guys, I really didn't ever get to know him that well. Heck, at that time I was typing at least 3 words per minute, so it was difficult for me to even carry on a conversation. But I do remember having a great time and Milt being a part of it. I miss all you guys and I often wonder what everyone is doing. Waynejhed, my best bud, Rotteny, Rapid, MassWolf, Molly and just everyone. Sorry I don't have the memory to remember everyone. But I do miss you all. Milt, I got a father in law somewhere up there that I'm sure you'd like. I could only hope to be the man he and you were. We'll finally meet on the streets paved with gold, one glad morning. until then...

OH-Dear Milt -- I don't know what I will do without you -- everytime lose my link to the Tips and Tricks room -- you always put me there...Oh honey, I just dunno what to do now-- but YOU know YOU will be greatly missed by ME! Everytime I see your screen name pop on -- I know you are always there with us...Enjoy your new home above in heaven -- where you earned the heavenly kingdom.

Love and light from "Grand".

I will leave this poem for you MILT my AOL friend from all of us old timers from the Tips & Tricks Room...

When somebody dies, a cloud turns into
an angel, and flies up to tell God
to put another flower on a pillow.
A bird gives the message back to
the world, and sings a silent prayer
that makes the rain cry. People dis-
appear, but they never really go away.

The spirits up there put the sun to
bed, wake up grass, and spin the
earth in dizzy circles. Sometimes you
can see them dancing in a cloud during
the day-time, when they're supposed
to be sleeping. They paint the rain-
bows and also the sunsets and make
waves splash and tug at the tide.

They toss shooting stars and listen to
wishes. And when they sing wind-
songs, they whisper to us, don't
miss me too much. The view is nice
and I'm doing just fine. {{{{HUG}}}}

Since finding out about dear Miltons departure from life..I have been at a total loss for words..this was the first time I have ever cried about losing a person I've never had the pleasure of meeting in real life..Milt was and always will be loved, cherished and respected by all of us who knew him..I came across a poem which makes me think of what Milt would be saying to his daughter right now and I wanna share it with everyone..so here goes:

"I'm gone now, but I'm still very near.
Death can never seperate us.
Each time you feel a gentle breeze,
It's my hand caressing your face.
Each time the wind blows,
It carries my voice whispering your name.
When the wind blows your hair ever so slightly,
Think of it as me pushing a few stray hairs back in place.
When you feel a few raindrops fall on your face,
It's me placing soft kisses.
At night look up in the sky and see the stars shining so brightly.
I'm one of those stars and I'm winking at you and smiling with delight.
For never forget, you're the apple of my eye."
I'm gonna miss ya Miltie..my love always..

Though I haven't been in the TnT rooms for over a year now, I will always remember Milt. For I was and still a teenager, yet that didn't matter to Milt. What mattered to him was respecting and helping people, and that is what he did best.

On 08-Nov-2000, MyKitty from NY...
Milt was a dear, sweet man. I will miss him very much. A smile always came over my face when he would come into the room. I always got a kiss and a hug from him. He will be dearly missed. Kitty

On 08-Nov-2000, Denise from OH...
I could barely read all these beautiful letters thru my tears. But i knew Milt for the past 3 years and for the longest time.. we just hugged and said hello and went about our business. Until one day i got this Instant message from him..From that day..not only did i make a very good friend..i also understood a little bit about what its like to grow older. Milt was indeed one of the smartest men i have ever talked with. Very brilliant minded..and very calm and relaxing to talk to. He is and will be sadly missed. I sosorry he had to leave us. But know he is in God's hands and will be better off.

On 07-Nov-2000, Jim from MI...
Goodbye Dum-Dum (LOL) We're all gonna miss you, your charm, and your wit. I'm Sure Tampa Bella South Carolina will miss you too, but now you are with Mary. =)If they have .MIM files, or any other stuff in heaven, as always drop it in an email to me and I'll fix you right up =)Take Care Milt!!Jim/Rapid

On 07-Nov-2000, Shopdad from IN...
My dad always told me to not mourn death, but to celebrate the life of the person gone. It just isn't easy with Mo. Mo seemed to always be there with the "appropriate" comment when it was needed. His candor and his online friendship will be sorely missed. Go for the T1 line Mo !! no slow modems for you...

On 07-Nov-2000, Missy from IL...

On 07-Nov-2000, Chris from a state of rememberance...
Milt was always a very very kind man. I regret that I have been absent from T&T for so long, and when Di emailed me the news that Milt had died... I was utterly shocked. I still utterly shocked. I didn't know you very well Milt, but I know you will be happy where you are, and we will miss you where we are.---Chris

On 07-Nov-2000, Margo from CO...
As I fight back the tears of sorrow, I didnt realize til now how much Milt ment to me and to everyone who knew him. He took the time to listen and help those he could in his own special way. I/We shall miss him dearly. Milt where ever you are, we will miss you, and We love you. Someday we will meet again in that big help chat room up there.

On 06-Nov-2000, Douglas...
It is with great honor and pride that I announce that Milt will have a permanent place here on your website, Fractured.Net. With his family's permission, I have renamed "The Writer's Hall" to "Milt's Writing Hall" as a way to show how much of an impact he had on all our lives. I will also be posting a few of his writings and a picture of Zoey and him. Milt? {S taps} Thank you so much for being you.

On 06-Nov-2000, Dawn from MI...
I always loved having you in the room. You were a breath of fresh air. I will always have a place in my heart for you. I will miss you a lot Mo!

On 06-Nov-2000, Ilene from AR...
I so thankful and grateful I had the opportunity to met Milt; to share and learn from him. The respect he showed everyone is something we can all learn. I so enjoyed his sense of humor and wit. I will miss you, Milt.

On 06-Nov-2000, Song from my heart...
Milt always called me his little *spryte*. He befriended me no less than 3 years ago and since then held a tender place in my heart. He will always be with me, held tenderly in that special place in my heart. Milt, thank you, and I will miss you the rest of my life.Valerie

On 06-Nov-2000, Looney from TN...
Although I didn't know you very well, you will still be missed by us all. My sympathy goes out to his family. I have recently lost my grandmother, so I know the pain you feel.

On 06-Nov-2000, Pam from KS...
Milt...I sit here with tears in my eyes recalling our first meeting. How you inspired me, a new computer user at the time...You were 80, and I a mere 40, but seeing how you bravely went forth into computing land helped me...it made my fears go away. And your humor, it often brightened my days. I for one will miss you Milt, and you will always be in my thoughts. You have earned a special place in all of our hearts. There is a new angel in heaven now..Milt bless you always. I miss you... Pam

On 06-Nov-2000, Rick from TX...
Milt was always a kind man with no bad words for anyone. I got to know him from the old T&T days, and always respected his attitude and demeanor in all the ways he conducted himself. He was loved by all and will be missed by his online friends.

On 06-Nov-2000, Jodie from TX...
Milt, I was so sad yesterday and this morning.....and then I started thinking.....How much better you feel now and you are once again with your beloved Mary Nell...and I would like to think that Henry is there with both of you.I'm still sad but only for us....the ones that you left behind. Milt, I will never forget all the hugs and {S Kisses} you gave all of us.....and always wanting to have a dance..who knows maybe one of these days we can all have our dance. To Milt's family,My sympathies go out to you.....Milt was a very special person and will be missed very much.Jodie

On 06-Nov-2000, Dave from Protestant...

On 06-Nov-2000, Cynapede from TX...
I have had the pleasure of knowing Milt on AOL for past several years. I found him to be a pleasant and wise man.Milt...may you rest in peace.Milt's Family--May God be with you. Know that Milt is not suffering. In time, the pain will subside and pleasant memories will prevail.God bless!Cindy

On 06-Nov-2000, Annie from ---...
My mom and I met Milt the first day he was online with AOL. I was always impressed with the fact that at his age, he was open to learning something new. Our family still uses a barbeque sauce recipe that Milt snail-mailed to my mom over three years ago and we bake his Cowboy cookies every Christmas. I haven't had a chance to visit with Milt lately, but early on we visited daily in the old TNT room and he was always a gentleman and so very very in love with his wife. He spoke of his family often and we shared stories of our dogs.... little Henry was such a big part of his life and I know Milt really missed him terribly when he died. I was so very glad when he got little Zoey. Take care my friend..... "God conceals from us the full happiness that follows death so that we may be able to endure life." Love Annie

God has truly taken home one of his most beautiful flowers. milt was such a dear friend to me. i felt like i could tell him anything. a true gentleman. when i first started hanging out in TnT - he was one of my first buddies, and as time grew - he turned out to be one of my "bestest" buddies. he was with me the night i brought my mama home from the hospital - and sit up with us chatting and sending "get well wishes" and "cheer" to her. he lightened my heart with condolences when she died. even when i stopped hanging out - he would "find me around" and chat. he started coming in to garden chat and met a lot of new friends there - they loved the old gent too!he has been with me through so many days and will be greatly missed in all the days to come. DEEPEST SYMPATHY TO HIS FAMILY: we feel like we know y'all - he never ceased with his stories of his children and grandchildren. our hearts and prayers are with you all. with love, eloise

On 06-Nov-2000, Chris from AL...
I too met Milt several help rooms ago. I saw him in the rooms helping often and I talked with him occasionally. Though I didn't know him personally I considered him an "online" friend and will miss him. My sympathy goes out to his family and I wish them the best. I hope to talk with you again someday Milt, until then this meager farewell.

On 06-Nov-2000, Nick from IL...
I've known "Mo" for about 4 years. We've talked before but I really never got to know him personally. He helped many others in many different help rooms. He was always there when you needed him. He will be missed by many. To his family, God Bless.

On 06-Nov-2000, Lynn from CA...
Well buddy, now you know the outcome. The results of your beliefs and the great things you did and said while with us, of all the helping hands you offered and comforting words, the shared love, the shared laughs, the wit, the wisdom, the friendship. You are now with our Lord, the reward for the life you chose to live. I will not morn for you tho I will miss you, and i hope to see you again. Maybe we can arrange a help room up there.For Milt's loved ones and friends, my prayers are with you, and my thanks for sharing this unique person with so many.

On 06-Nov-2000, Dianne from AZ...
There are no words to describe how Milt touched my life. He was a wonderful man with a good heart. Always there for me when I needed him with kisses and hugs. Now he is with the one he needed the most, his wife. Rest in peace dear friend, you surely will be missed by me. I will see you in heaven when my time is chosen, then we can have that dance you always wanted. Love you Milt, you will be missed dearly. {{{{{{{{Milt}}}}}}}} {S Cavekiss}

For You Milt, I know, you are soaring with Eagles....:-)Soaring With Eagles I once asked God for wings to fly and didn't ask for moreI could barely see over blades of grass, much less mount up and soarBut God upon hearing my small weak cry took it into His power and mightI received nothing less than an eagle's wings upon which I could take flightAnd now the rest is up to me, there is no height I cannot attainSo I'm up here looking down at mountaintops, soaring with eagles in God's glorious reign

On 06-Nov-2000, MizzGnomer from ---...
Milt, you knew me as Guide Gno, and Rnger Gno, and then with the changes as HOST Guide Gnome, and HOST HELP Gnome. You followed as TnT went thru it's changes, always there to help the new members, always there to make me smile. You will be very missed. One last favor give Tim a hug from me, I know you loved critters and Tim is there with you. Also say Hey to Perry, and I know the connection isn't good up there, but I also know that you and Perry are keeping an eye on us, and probably have a TnT room already going up in heaven. Till we meet again old friend. :DMizz

On 06-Nov-2000, Shaun from Midwest...
Like many others, I find myself at a loss for words. I usually do when things of this nature occur. Nonetheless, I felt I should at least say what I can, which follows:I didn't know Mo very well, if you could even say I knew him at all, but what I saw of him was a very bright man who appeared to be very outgoing and willing to help others, be it online or off, and it's upsetting to see him pass regardless of the fact that I didn't know him. There just aren't as many people like that on this earth as there should be. Hopefully, what he was able to give during his time here will be carried on by those touched by him, and may he rest in peace.Sincerely,Shaun

On 06-Nov-2000, Raymond from CA...
It's always sad to lose someone... I didn't know him as well as I'd have liked to, but, he was always a friendly face. He'll be missed. Good luck in the great beyond, MO.

On 06-Nov-2000, Minty from WA...
To the family of Milt It is never easy to lose a loved one. Milt made a caring impact on so many online people. He always had a friendly greeting for me and would help me in whatever way he could. Most of all, he helped me laugh when I had problems. "Mo" was a part of our TnT and OHT online family and we will grieve his loss. MO, for one more time, I give you this. ((((((((((MoFletch)))))))))) {S Mintkiss)Rest in peace, our friend. :) Love ya', Patty

On 06-Nov-2000, Snowie from MI...
I will miss Milt, I admired him so much, loved his ways and his charm. He found a place in all our hearts and welcomed us all into his. Milt will long be remembered in the fondest way. Snowkiss to you Milt...

On 06-Nov-2000, Lonnie from CA...
I try so hard not to cry when someone that I care for passes. It never works. Then I thought that he'd get to be with his wife again and that he'll be in Heaven. That's a good thought and my tears are drying already. He was such a sweetie and made me feel good. I was always glad to see him pop into the room. He thought I was a beautiful lady. Well, I thought he was a beautiful man and admired his computer expertise at his age. You can't help but love a guy who keeps up with the times. I will miss him. :( My condolences to his Family and Zoey.

On 06-Nov-2000, Di from ---...
In rememberance of a very special man that has been a part of my life for almost 4 years online. Always a gentleman, always a friend. I will miss your special humor and seeing those hugs in chat. You were always so willing to share your life with others and be there for any in need, and you've touched more than you know in many special ways. It's such a loss for those of us who knew you to be without you, but I know you go on with your loving care in a much greater place than this. I send my love and prayers to your family and pray for God's comfort over them in this time. I'll miss you, Milt.

On 06-Nov-2000, Kanga from State of Sorrow...
This is a copy of a letter I sent to Milt's family. I share it with you, for I have no words left.~~~~I knew Milt, respected him immensely, and adored him as a human being. I so admired his ability to mix with those of all ages and to forever take on new challenges and forever gaze at new horizons...Milt was there for me as my father died, and as my grandmother died. As time passed, he was not able to read the screen as quickly, and I'd have to give him sound "smooches" because he always heard and responded to those -- most usually by saying, "Thanks, Kanga! I really needed that," along with a very gentlemanly risque remark :) I find myself wondering about [his dog] Zoey. Whenever Mo was having a not-so-good day, he'd say, "Oh well, Zoey loves me."Just a couple of weeks ago, a friend of his was sitting with him when he was online and I sent a sound file to the chat room and she "heard" his "Kiss". He took such great delight in sharing his pleasure with her. I must have smooched and kissed and megakissed him ten times that day :) That was Milt -- always looking to brighten another's day. I, for one, always got a huge smile on my face when I saw him pop into the room. :)It is with tears in my eyes and sadness in my soul that I remember the last time I "saw" him online checking his email. I asked him how he was, and he replied that therapy was going well. His main complaint was the need for oxygen. I needed him to be okay.I know that there is nothing that I can do or say to comfort you in your time of loss, however I do want you to know how much respect and admiration people from eight to eighty-nine had for him. He never had an unkind word for anyone, and by the same token, no one ever had an unkind word for him.Milt always assured me that as long as he was around, I had a room in which to stay. That room is gone now, but what really matters is that the essence of Milt will be with me forever. I hope that if I fortunate enough to reach his age, I will do so with the dignity, humor and honesty which I so admired in him.May God bless and keep you all during this time of loss for us all -- for Milt was very much a part of my "online family." Only distance prevented us from being three-dimensional friends, and in the end, even that could not separate us, for we communicated. This is the first time I have ever been saddened by Milt. Perhaps it was his time to leave this plane; but I for one, was not ready for him to go. I shall miss him oh so very much. Thank you for allowing me to share my thoughts with you, and thank you for sharing this wonderful man who thought so much of his family, with us, his online family and friends.~~~~May God grant you His peace, Mo ***** {S Megakiss}Note to Doug: Thank you for a page thoughtfully and beautifully done :*j*

When I was a Ranger, my shifts were always late at night,and Milt was *usually* online much earlier.I remember he came into TnT late one night & I wasworking... he found it so hard to believe that I wasn't a new Ranger -- he thought he knew EVERYone. :)I took me a long time to convince him I had beena Ranger for two years. We didn't see each otheroften, but when we did, the conversations werealways memorable.He was a very sweet, very kind man... who made mesmile. He had a twinkle in his eye, and he will be missed. God bless you, Milt.. and give yourfamily comfort in their loss. Anne

Although I did not know "MO" as much as the other TNT's regulars,He alwasys was available to help out. I had could instant message him if I needed help with something and he would always show me the way step by step.

I've known Milt for about as long as most everyone else at TNT/OHT/etc. etc..
He always had a smile and a cheer for me whenever I showed up for a shift or what-not. A very kind and dear man who will definately be missed.

Doug, thanks for this place to remember MILT in.

Milt; I pray I'll see you in Heaven. I know I'll be there; Jesus promised so

("For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life" John 3:16)

If anyone wants to come along, it's never too late.

Thanks Milt, for all the memories. They will be cherished.

I always loved Milt's profile quote.
"People are down on what they ain't up on"

It kind of showed what kind of person he was -- so open and honest and wise. Always willing to help and always ready to listen. And ALWAYS able to make people smile, even when they didnt want to. I'll miss you, Milt.
