Sunrise: April 9, 1953 – Sunset: August 22, 2022
Isaiah 12:2: Behold, God, my Salvation! I will trust and not be afraid, for the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; yes, He has become my salvation. For I the Lord the God will hold thy right hand, saying onto thee.
Isaiah 43:2: Fear not, I will help thee when thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee; when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. Isaiah.
Isaiah 40:31: But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. He did all of that.

Sincere condolences to Milen’s wife and family. He was truly an upstanding gentleman; a steadfast, and loyal member of the Liberian community at large. May his soul rest in peace.
What a loss of a childhood friend. I called you when you were on your sick bed. I prayed that you overcome the health challenges you were facing. Every time I called you, I heard your fading voice. I refused to accept that this could be the last time I was hearing your voice. And so, I kept calling when I could. Unfortunately, the last time I called, the phone rang, and rang, and rang, and rang. Then I realized the fading voice had faded away forever. You will be missed Milen. Those childhood days’ memories will always be with me, until we meet again. Goodbye my friend!! May your Soul and souls of all the faithful departed, Rest in Perfect Peace.
I was stunned when I heard of Milen’s passing. Got to how him years ago when seven of us were chosen to be trained for positions in the Special Security Service at the Executive Mansion in Monrovia, Liberia. He was a very dedicated friend and will be missed. May his soul rest in peace and light perpetual shine on him.
My deepest sympathy for your loss. Mr. King was always nice and friendly towards me. He would walk towards me, extend his hand and express his greetings no matter where we gather. I will remember his smile and how pleasant he always was. ❤️
My deepest sympathy to you and your family.
We extend our deepest condolences to the families for the transitioning of Milen King, Sr. He dedicated his life to family, community and country.
May his Soul rest in perpetual peace and light every lasting shine on him.
So sorry to learn of the passing of your love one. May God grant you the strength as he comforts you through your grief.
Saddened to learn of the death of a Stalwart, a Brother, a Leader, the former Treasurer of George Longe Lodge #157 AASRFM . Brother Milen O King was a Brothers Keeper.
You my Brother were kind, generous and gentle.
As your travels in this earthly realm has come to an end, may the Grand Architect of the universe grant you eternal rest.
Sleep on in peace my Brother, till we meet again.
