Posted by: Randy Eihausen from Phoenix, AZ
Please accept my sincere condolences on the passing of Milt. I'm so sorry about your loss. Milt will be deeply missed. I remember him as I was growing up down the street from Swanson's Market. Vistiting the little store to buy candy was always my favorite. Also remember he had the best sweet corn every summer.

With deep sympathy,

Angie and family,
Please accept our deepest sympathy in Milt's passing. Milt meant so much to all of our family. The kids grew up waiting to see Milt in church with his famous wink. He always had a good word for us all and he truly was a great guy. We will be praying for you all in the next few weeks. God bless

Angie and family
My deepest sympathy goes out to you and your family in your loss. I'll never forget all the times we, as kids, walked to the grocery store and made our purchases. And working with Milt at GreyStone. He always had a smile. When we were at the home visiting dad, we could always tell when Milt was around because you could hear the whistling. I hope all the good memories help to ease your pain

Angie and family, wow where to begin? I am so sorry for your loss. Milt was such an awesome guy. My brother and I use to walk to Swanson's market at least once a day and every day after school we would walk there before going home. We also enjoyed seeing him in church with his famous wink as he was taking collections. I always got excited when we had family functions at Jr's house cause Milt and Angie would always be sitting outside and we were always able to walk across the street to visit. He will be greatly missed as a true hero to me when I was growing up! He owned a candy store and for that he was an idol! Thanks for the wonderful chilhood memories Milt! Fly with the angels and know you and your family are in my prayers! Sincerely Kara Kudron

To the Swanson family you have my deepest condolences. I remember Milt at Swansons Market on 8th Street. I went to Field school and every Friday we would head to Swansons to get the famous slushies. He always had a wink and always in good spirit, he was such a great person, every once in awhile he would even give us a free penny candy. He will always be remembered and deeply missed.

Angie and Family,
Wow what a shock. I just saw him in the hosp when I was there seeing my grandpa and he looked so awsome.. I can still hear him singing like a bird like he did when he was at the manor.. He knew who I was right away when he was taken to the manor from when we walked up to the store. Wanted you to know you are in my thoughts. We at least know he has gotten his wings now.. Please take care...May god bless you all today and always

Kristi and Family, I was saddened to read about the passing of your father. May all the memories carry you through this difficult time. I have many fond memories of stopping at the market to pick out my $1.00 worth of favorite candy. Those were the good ole days. Know that your dad put many smiles on the kids, both young and old while growing up in Columbus. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Kristi and family. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family for the passing of your dad. My greatest childhood memories are of visiting Swanson's market and buying candy.
