To the Miller family, You all called Dave by different names whether it was Son, Dad, Nephew, or Cousin. I was one of the fortunate ones who got to call Dave FRIEND! It was a great pleasure to work with such a kind and giving man during my time at The Home Depot! I will always speak fondly of Dave and carry some specials memories we created during our years together. Billy Joel says it so well "ONLY THE GOOD DIE YOUNG!" More Good Has Now Arrived in Heaven!! May God Bless Dave and You His Loving Family!
