I moved to Westminster Oaks in June of 2010. Floy Miller lived in the apartment under mine and the first Friday that I was there, I received a note from Floy inviting me to come to her apartment at 4:00 p.m. for a glass of wine. Many people were friendly and helpful, but Floy was the first to invite me to her apartment. I appreciated that, and we became good friends.
I was in the same 4th grade class with Ricky Fregger (above). It was 1968-69. I recall that the Millers went to the Mexico City Olympics (Oct. 1968). She had a great story for us about her husband trying to buy mouth wash there, even though he didn't know the Spanish term for mouth wash. Those were tumultuous years for our country, but Mrs. Miller managed to shield us from much of that. The year in Room 18 had a safe feel to it. A generation of children benefited from being taught by those great teachers at Kate Sullivan, and Mrs. Miller was among the best.
Ken and Dabney, I loved your Mom. We had many interesting conversations on varied subjects. I am so glad she and Betty were able to attend Bradley and Melony"s wedding in 2004. A fun time was had by all. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all during this time. Sheila and Brad DSasser
Dear Ken and Dabney,
My mother and father, two sisters, brother and I all loved your mother very much... well, let me go further and say "adored" her very much. She and your father were the best friends and neighbors a family could have. While none of us were lucky enough to have your mother as a classroom teacher, we often sat in wonder in her parlor--during many "happy hours" there--as she effortlessly, charmingly and graciously demonstrated the art of being a true Southern Lady. She touched us very deeply. With fondest best wishes, Philip, Judy, Susan & Bruce Froemke
My thoughts and prayers go out to you and the family on the passing of your dear sweet mother. I have many fond memories of her and your dad. They were both special people. I hope you and your family are well.
