Not sure what to say?

Dear Jim and Ruth, I am so sorry to hear of Aunt Lib's passing. She was such a joy and inspiration to everyone. Few people have made it to their 100th birthday. She made it and enjoyed it. I know she will live forever in the heart of all the Miller family and they will find comfort in the wonderful memories over the years. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

How do I describe Aunt Lib? Funny, smart, sharp, quick witted, with a tremendous love for her family and her many friends. Aunt Lib played basketball in school and was a great bowler until she was about 90. An avid sports fan, she particularly enjoyed ACC basketball and her Carolina Tarheels. Young in spirit, young in outlook and and young at heart. What a tremendous role model she has been for how life can be LIVED and ENJOYED at 100 and beyond.

Sympathy to the family. Seventy or eighty years at most but 100 years is so special. (Psalms 90:10)

Lib was one of the most positive ladies I have ever met. We had a age differance, but that didn't stop us from having some great times and laughs together. She will truly be missed by all who knew her. Great person.

I remember this lady from when I was a child. She was a kind and gentle spirit. Her sister, Jesse Miller, was my grandmother. The passing of another generation is sad.

I am sorry for the loss of your Mother and Grandmother. She was my Grandmother's sister (Jessie Miller Sorrells). I always loved seeing all of Mamaw's sisters and brother Lawrence when I was growing up when they would come to her house. Living to be 100 is a great thing. I know you will miss her but she is now with all her family in Heaven.

You have our deepest sympathy in the loss of Lib. Bowled with her. God bless.
