All day I've been thinking about the ways that Dan touched my life. Mostly, I think of the way that, no matter what my mood, he could make me laugh. Whether it was while spending time at the Miller household or running into him at church... I walked away smiling and laughing 100% of the time. I also reflect on the fact that he was such an inspirational advisor that gave me great guidance as a Bishop and clearly wanted nothing but the best for me. I still remember several of the talks he gave at BYDs back in Midland, one in particular that helped me rearrange some misplaced priorities. It's so rare to meet people who make everyone they come in contact with feel important, loved, and cared about and he could really do that. I specifically remember spending nights during youth conference sleeping over at the Millers and appreciating the fact that everyone staying there felt like a "best friend" to him. Most importantly, Dan is always someone I hoped to emulate... my prayers are with him and his family.
This is very sad - he was a wonderful person - he was so kind and always smiling.
I loved Bishop Miller so very much! He was such a wonderful man, always full of love and quick with a smile and a kind word. I will always remember how he was one of the few people that my sister Danica was always comfortable around, even during some difficult years. He always made her feel welcome, loved and special. We will miss you, Bishop Miller!
We were privileged to have Dan not only as our Bishop but also as our home teacher and then later of course in our Stake Presidency. He was such a warm, caring person and our children loved him as did Bruce and I. We are going to miss this wonderful man.
Dan Miller was a kind and gentle giant of a man. He will be missed!! Prayers and love to Diane.
