  1. Wendall and Cyndi, I am so sorry for your loss. There are no words that will stop the sadness you are feeling at this time.

  2. Mr Wendall Miller, I know if my parents(Hazel and Gus Crochet-hathaway) were alive I"m sure they would share in saying, "I am so sorry for your loss". May God hold your family together in your time of sadness. God Bless.

  3. I loved Ms. Wilma. She and her sweet sister used to come get me when I was little and bring me to Bible School. Such a sweet Godly lady and I know she will be missed by all who knew and loved her. My heart and prayers go out to the family.

  4. Dear Miller Family, I remember Ms. Wilma as such a gracious, lovely, kind and friendly lady. I know she will be missed dearly and may God comfort your hearts! Sincerely, Cheri (Arnold) Ottaway and family
