It has been a pleasure knowing Miller. We had some great times at the cruise ins and Union Drag Way. Such a nice person to be around. Always had fun with Miller when he brought the "FARM TRUCK". Went to church with Miller at Cross Point, he was a 100% CHRISTIAN. I will miss that smile every Sunday. SUCH A GREAT PERSON! May the LORD bring peace to each of you in this sad time.

Frankie, Johnette, Fonda, Carmen, Hayley, and all of Miller's Family,
I was so saddened to learn of his passing. This breaks my heart for all the losses in our tiny lttle Bush River/Airport square this year. Ya'll were so good to Mama and I know she welcomed him with open arms. Some of my fondest childhood memories were made with your family. Seems like I spent literally hundreds of overnighters at your house on Rice Road. Those were some AWESOME times!! I pray God will wrap each of you in his loving arms and provide the comfort you need in the days, weeks and months ahead. I'm only a phone call away if you need me.
Love to all,
