Mr. Miller was a great neighbor and friend, though we didnt know each other long, he always made us feel welcome since the day we moved in. Going to miss those fresh tomatoes from his garden, taking him cookies, and his comments about my high grass. lol. We are at a loss, but heaven has gained another angel. Prayers and condolence to all the family.
