  1. I will never forget the way grandpa made me smile. He always was filled with jokes and never failed to make my day. The way we laughed together will always stay deep within my heart and I will cherish it for the rest of my life.
    I Love you Grandpa

  2. I’m a friend and co-worker of his daughter Yvonne. She loved her father so much and talked about him often. We are so glad she was with him these last five days. Prayers for her and Mr. Miller’s family. Nashville Fertility loves you Yvonne and praying for Gods piece and comfort.
