Richard was one of the "good guys" I really enjoyed talking with him over the years. First time I met Richard he asked me if I like "Texas A&M" I told him I admired "John David Crow" he liked that answer.
I will always cherish the many talks we had about family, Texas A&M, hunting and life in general. Your stories were enthralling and enlightening. I will miss picking you up to go to Millercreek to see your brother and family.
You will be in our hearts forever.
I first met Ric in Orange, TX. My wife was a pal of Anita's and we double dated a number of times. Ric had a handshake that could crack a walnut.We visited with Ric and Anita in Midland when driving from Dallas to Tucson. Later when they were in Austin, we met a Cisco's for great catchup time and Mexican food. Ric and I used the internet in recent years to cover politics, hunting and humor. It is hard to accept that he has passed on. . He will be missed. Kenneth Smith, Austin, TX.
Mr. Richard I am a firm believer that God places special people in our lives for a purpose and I am so grateful for the opportunity to have met such a gentleman of character and distinction. Even though our friendship was evanescent your memory shall always be engraved in my mind endlessly. There are no adjectives to describe the gratification that you brought to my life since our initial meeting. The conversations we shared, the emails we exchanged and the journey to Louisiana in which we partook are priceless mementos that I will always, always treasure. Thank you for the joy that you extended to me. Thank you for your reception of me, but more importantly thanks for being such a kind and gentle friend. Our meeting was one of predestination. Even though I have to say farewell my friend the mere thought of our crossing will forever remain. I shall never forget you for you showed up in my life when I needed revitalization. May the peace of the Lord be with you for always and forever my good comrade. To your family faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. God's true mercies shall endurth forever and ever. My prayers are with you all and God is standing by your side.
I KNEW RICHARD FROMTHE TIME WE LIVED IN NAVY PARK ADD. IN ORANGE. WE WENT TO SCHOOL TOGETHER FROM THE 8TH GRADE THRU 12. I KNEW HIS FAMILY AND OUR MOTHERS STAYED CLOSE UNTIL DEATH. RIGHARD WILL BE MISSED. I WOULD LIKE TO SEND OUR CONDOLENCES TO WIFE AND FAMILY.

Since I didn't know Ric, I watched the "Moving Memories" video -- one can appreciate a lot about a person through pictures. Family was important to him, both his natural family, friends, A&M. He enjoyed life. My heart is with you, Anita, Kim, Kellie, Kristie, Calvin, his friends, and I hope for you, time together, time to love and share many days.
My loving thoughts go out to Ric's family, at this time of sorrow. Though I did not know Ric Miller, I am good friends with Kim, his daughter, and reading about his history, makes me feel I know a little about this interesting man. And, he influenced Kim, a sweet, caring, talented woman. I know he will be so missed, and I will keep all of you in my heart.
Anita, Kim, Kellie and Kristie, although I regret being out of touch with Rick for a long time, I'm happy that we reconnected and were close for the past twenty plus years. I'm proud that Richard was my cousin but even happier that he was my friend. We'll all miss him but the good memories will linger on.
Anita and girls, I am sad that you are all experiencing this loss and I am sending good thoughts your way to help you heal in the months to come.
Though I only knew Ric very briefly, I am grateful to him and to you for giving us sweet Kim, who has made my dear old Dad so very happy. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your girls and I hope that this difficult time will bring our families closer together.
Anita, I am very sorry to hear of Richards passing. He was an amazing person to serve.
My deepest condolences for your loss Anita. I never met a kinder, more sincere man than Ric. I am a better person today because I knew Ric Miller. God bless you and your family and may He give you His peace and strength.
Anita, we want to offer our prayers for you & all the family in going thru this difficult time. Your strength will come from God and all your family & friends. We are here for you in any way that we can help. Jo Ann & Dick Odonnell.
