  1. CandleImageI met the Miller Family in 1974 at the age of 15. What a wonderful Family !!! “Big Mel” (Melvin) loved his children, Mark, Don, Vicki, Sandy and “Little Mel” along with their Mother Pat Miller. Mel was always a kind and soft spoken man that was very smart and always willing to help anyone that knew him. Melvin D. Miller was like a second Dad to me. He suffered several tragedies in his life with the loss of his youngest Son “Little Mel”, the loss of the Mother of his children Pat along with the loss of his middle Son Don. Don Miller was my best friend. I’ll never forget that phone call on that Sunday morning from Melvin about Don’s passing. I loved Melvin Miller and love the entire Miller Family !! I love and miss you Mel. God Bless Your Soul. No More Suffering. Rest In Peace My Friend !!! , Hill

  2. CandleImageDad,
