Memories

Jim and I would like to express our sympathy on the lose of your mother. I have fond memeories of both your mom and dad. As Jim and I are not blessed with grandchildren, I remember how your mom enjoyed our children before she got grandchilden of her own. Jim and I got a dog who I have have spoiled rotten. Maybe our kids knew how I would be if I got grandchildren and that's why we don't have any??? Lillian will always be a part of my past and hold a place in my heart. Jacqie

Memories

Although we only met a couple of times, Lillian left a memorable impression. You could tell the pride she took in her family and how they've grown over the years. She made friends of the family, like myself, feel as if we'd known each other for many years. She will be missed here on Earth, but her memory and legacy will live on in all who were fortunate enough to meet her, sample her recipes, and interact with any and all of the four Miller "kids" who model many of her wonderful and caring traits.
