  • To the.Miller Family, I am very sorry for your loss. May the Lord be with you now and always.
    God’s Garden. God looked around his garden, and saw an empty space. He looked down from heaven, and saw your smiling face. He put his arms around you, and whispered, “Come to rest.” His garden must be beautiful, He picks only the very best. It broke our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone. A part of us went with you the day God called you home. Our thoughts are always with you, a million times we’ve cried. And if our love could have saved you, you never would have died.
