My condolences to all who loved Clifford Miller. I didn't know him well but recall seeing him at family functions throughout the years. I believe he was married to my Grandma Fern's sister. I hope I have that right. I do believe my brother's middle name is in Uncle Clifford's honor. I am pleased to see he served in the military as my dad, Bill and I did also. What an incredible amount of time he had on this earth. I hope your hearts are full of wonderful memories of him. My condolences.

What an amazing 101 years of history Cliff witnessed! Janet Keeney often told me stories about her dad's humor, resiliency and compassion. He must have been a special man indeed to raise a daughter like my friend Janet. Condolences to the Miller family.
