Edgar Miller, Memphis absolutely loved you. We have lost a rock in our community. A man with such a big heart and was devoted to caring and sharing all that he had to give. Thank God for the many years he blessed us to have you.

I'm still in a bit of shock in the passing of Edgar. We called each other "cuz", related through marriage and distant cousins. He handled my Daddy and all of the Neely siblings between 2006-2019. He came within minutes when I called him on the night my father died, while we were already planning my step-father's funeral that same week. He literally pushed me through those 2 weeks of sudden loss & funerals. I'll never forget his comfort and love during that difficult time. He was the "Master" Funeral Director. The city and all who knew him have suffered a tremendous loss. Rest easy Cuz, tell my Daddy "Hi."

Edgar Miller, a kind hearted man. I first met Edgar when he handled my parents services. I then started working with Edgar when I typed obituaries at the newspaper. I told you to stop being so fussy (smile). You will be missed.

The Millers were our neighbors on Hyde Park before we all moved to other locations. His Dad and Mom were respectable members of the community and Egar followed the profession of his father. "How are you doing darling?" was how he greeted "family" - if he crossed paths with you, you were "family". A true professional, he was true to his word. I appreciate his help with my brother Carl Street's arrangement.
Rest in heaven Egar Miller. We will miss you darling.

I've known Edgar since we were young children on Clarksdale St. When he advanced in the funeral business, he didn't forget his childhood friends. He was always available when I had questions and when I needed help with a funeral for a family member. My aunt died out of town and one of her requests was to be funeralized in Memphis. I called Edgar, he told me what to do. A few weeks later my sister died which was a total shock to our family as well as for Edgar. I will NEVER forget his first words to me: Don't worry about a thing, we are going to get her. He said that because she died out of town. And our family didn't have to worry because he was with us every step of the way even to her burial seeing the last piece of dirt put on her. Edgar knew our family loved and appreciated him. Thank you Edgar. You will really be missed. Not only is it a void in our family, it's a void in the enter city of Memphis and surrounding areas.

Birthed Edgar Tyrone Miller, to some Miller; to some Mr. Miller; to some even Bro. Frog; but for me he was Pop. As we Celebrate the Life and certainly the LEGACY of the Warrior, we are saddened because of his passing, however I rejoice because of whos he was and who he knew that he belonged to. I owe my entire career as a Certified Funeral Service Practitioner to him for teaching me all that he knew and what his principles were, either. N. J. Ford & Sons Funeral Parlor and the family has been that step needed to ride a bike, if you will in this profession for most. Out of all that he showed and lessons learned by Pop, there was one that I will live by daily and remember he said Tucker youre good at what you do and thats why I stay on you, never be rejected. Oh what a lesson. There will never be another Edgar Miller for he was his own brand. To all our prayers are continuous and the celebration of his life continues for many years to come.

May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived. Edgar was one of a kind. He was very professional and made sure that you got just what you wanted for your loved one. He has handled services for many relatives and friends. If your service ran long Edgar would make sure that you got to the cemetery on time. God bless the family!

Edgar was a dear friend to my family and I.! His sister Veronica was very dear to me as well. Living in Detroit, she was like my second mom. Rest well my dear "buddy". My sincerest condolences to the family and his children as well as many others in the Memphis area.

Mr. Edgar was wonderful with my family when my great aunt died and then seven weeks later when my aunt died. When my aunt passed it was a total shock to our family and Mr. Edgar made sure things went as smoothly as possible. He was even at the burial when they placed my auntie in the ground until they placed the dirt over her casket. He was there to pretty much hold our hands. Im truly grateful that he was there for our family and his death is a tremendous loss to our family and the city of Memphis. You will be missed Mr. Edgar . You will be missed.

The funeral home industry has lost a true pioneer in Memphis Tennessee. Mr Edgar Miller exhibited the utmost best professionalism and empathy whenever we encountered him during our darkest time. Losing a relative is difficult in and of itself but Edgar felt our loss and was of assistance anyway he could be. For that we say Thank You for all you did for my family each time we called you during our most darkest times. To the family and friends alike of Edgar Miller, God has gained a wonderful Angel among his flock. Edgar was truly one of a kind when it came to handling his business affairs, even when he is not at work, he had a superb personality.
My love thoughts and prayers goes out to the family friends and co-workers of Edgar Miller. God has called him home and said, well done my servant.
Take your rest Mr Edgar Miller. Rest in Paradise.

Mr. Miller was a true professional in his industry. He handled the services of my Mothers Home Going Celebration and made my family & I proud to have him deliver an impeccable, quality, and respectful service. His attention to detail left nothing to wish for. His presence and appearance exhibited professionalism. His demeanor made everyone that came in contact with Him feel honored and valued. The industry has lost a great representative. My condolences to his family.
