Tim and I made many trips down to visit with Phyllis and I really enjoyed her company. She had a great sense of humor and a loving warmth for Tim. She will be missed. I am sure that Tim’s arms were wide open to receive her.
I met the Millers in 1998 though The eldest son Jim, I felt an immediate bond, we shared stories and felt like I had known them my whole life, Mrs. Miller had done a wonderful job raising them, I came to realize that everyone who had met them felt the same way, they made friends feel like they were family, I miss John, Phyllis and Tim and cherish my friendship with the Millers dearly.
It was a pleasure to be one of care takers. Rest in peace my sweet lady.
