  • Harrold and Dorothy were the people who first kept me overnight when my parents went to conference. They reared four wonderful men, whose lives demonstrate the generous and industrious spirit of their parents. Heaven is an even sweeter place, knowing that a wonderful person like Harrold is there.

  • It has been our joy to know Harrold and Dorothy Milligan since I was a child. Their example of faithfulness and kindness to our family and especially their Christian examples to their sons has always been admired. Harrold is finally home, and I’m certain that his memory will be sweet to those of us who knew and loved him and his family.

  • I remember visiting with Uncle Harold and Aunt Dorothy when they lived on north Greenwood. What a time we had visiting with the boys and Aunt Dorothy fixing dinner. Uncle Harold being my Dad’s twin brother was one of a pair of wonderful men. I was proud to have him for an Uncle. He will be missed. You boys are so lucky.

  • Delbert,Ray,Richard,and Tom: so sorry to read of your loss of your Father. Rest assured God has a place for him. I remember working with him at Huber and the family reunions for the Bill families.

  • It was my privilege to get to know Noah at Sterling House. He shared a dining table with my mom. Though I never knew him as a younger man, I can only guess that he was kind, generous and that he loved the Lord. God uses his people in all circumstances and Noah blessed my mom and me daily as he sang hymns and played them on his harmonica. I pray that you will be comforted as you celebrate his life. He is surely celebrating with all the saints of heaven!

  • It has been an honor and privilege to be one of Noah’s nurses at Sterling House! How we miss him!! We so enjoyed him playing his harmonica and he and I would sings hymns together, and he remembered every word! To all the family, please know my love, thoughts and prayers are with all of you during this time of loss. Sterling House will not be the same, as I truly loved and cared about Noah!!
