Services


Condolence & Memory Journal

Sidney was my second supervisor at the telephone company. He was always helpful, fair, honest and appreciative of hard work. In the work group I was in, Mr. Miller had many social gatherings with his "boys" and their families. My wife and I remember how pleasant he was to all of us--cared about not just the job, but the family life as well. He was a wonderful role model for everyone he came in contact with. His life made a difference to all of those who worked with them even though he probably didn't realize it. Presently, I am suffering with a fracture of my hip and was unable to attend his service. All of you are in my thoughts and prayers. Mr. Sidney Miller "walked his talk" which is something not many people do. I'm sure God will comfort all of his family with wonderful memories. We WILL see him again.

Dear Bruce & Linda -
I just read of the passing of your dad. To know that the "long goodbye" has finally come for your dad and he has reached his final home with the Lord Jesus. He fought the good fight and now the Lord will remind him of what he needs to know!!!! His insidious Alzheimaers has been healed for death is the final healing. I hope your mother is well and holding up. How fortunate they both were in that you and Linda "honored your father and mother" with loving care. God will bless you for it.

In His peace and rest.
Ann Lempesis
