Celebrating the life of Milo M. Shelton
Thank you for signing Milo M. Shelton's Guestbook
I want to say that I am sorry for the loss of your loved one. May the words recorded in the Bible at Hosea 13:14 be of comfort. This reveals the hope that the Creator provides for the family. There it says: "From the power of the grave I will recover them; from death I will recover them..." Yes the Creator shares your pain and by means of the resurrection he gives the prospect of seeing our dead loved ones again. Once again I am sorry for your loss.

Milo was my daughters first crush! And for good reason. He was kind and sweet and has the most beautiful smile. He warmed our hearts and we are so lucky to have seen him blossom into the amazing man he became. He will be dearly missed but never forgotten. I pray for you and your family and am truly sorry for the loss of an amazing soul. Always, Katherine, Brendan, and Alexis.

Hello Shelton Family, I'm a neighbor living in the area.
Having heard of your most recent loss, I want to leave you a brief post. I too, well know the grief of losing love ones,and that at times like these, it is encouraging just to know that others are thinking about us. Something that has really helped me to cope with such losses, is the wonderful promise of Christ Jesus, recorded for our comfort at John 5:28,29. I hope, that when you are feeling up to it, that you are going to look up these powerful Scriptures, in your copy of The Bible. Also, I hope that this brief note,finds The Family feeling as good as can be expected Today.
With Greatest Sympathy, Your Neighbor : P.D.Walker.

It is with a heavy heart that I send sympathy for the loss of Milo. He was one of my favorites to watch wrestle. He demonstrated a winner's heart and had the skill to back it up. Milo Shelton will be remembered as a champion. Prayers to the family.
