One Condolence for Arthur T. Miller, Jr.

  • Dad – You made it to 98! I’m remembering our last trip taking you to the Casino and playing our dice game at home where you beat me most of the time! Glad we were able to honor your Navy service with you before you drifted away. I imagine you in heaven dancing with Mom and playing golf with Ed. Be at Peace. Love, Tracy
