Caroline, Robbie, Tee and the entire Miller Family, I was so sorry to hear of Dave’s passing. Time spent with Dave were special : talking football, baseball, hunting, cards at J3C- just visiting with Dave was great. Everyone who knew Dave was better for the experience. We will miss him and never forget him. Again our sympathy!
