I am so sorry to hear about Mrs. Miller's passing. Your Dad and she were very important to me when I was a young person starting my career. I attended many gatherings at their house and your Mom was always sweet and kind. I will remember you all in my prayers. Terri Neel-Kinder

As a teenager, Joyce and Virgil were a second set of parents to me. She was a special lady. My thoughts and prayers for Brad, Carolyn and Mark and their spouses and families. Losing a parent is not easy, so make remembering them joyous. I am sorry I can't be there in person, so sending love.

Miller family, so sorry about your Mom. She was such a sweet lady. She was so much fun to work with when she worked part time in Treasurers Office, we had lots of fun and still got our work done. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
