Condolence & Memory Journal

Dearest Miller Family,
I am so sorry for this deep loss of your mother! What a gracious lady, loving woman, and wonderful mom. I loved visiting your home and talking with her. Jean’s heart and laughter were bigger than the stars. And there was always extra room for me at the table when I stopped by. What I remember most? Jean’s smile! And even after I left Hunker, a few times I stopped by when back in town and she hadn’t changed a bit! She made my childhood special and I will always be grateful to God and to Jean. Thank you Mrs. Miller!❤. And may you all be held in God’s loving arms with the peace of Jesus.

I am so sorry for your loss. Jean was a great lady and will be missed. I enjoyed our conversation on the back porch. I would be next door and see her out and would go over and talk for a while. May it give you God's peace knowing she is our Lord.

Although we ALL know the end will come and especially when you live to the beautiful age of 93, it is still somehow a shock to my system. Gramma Trailer (as my children fondly called her) was a strong, loving, caring, kind woman who helped me raise and shape my children into what and who they are today. I loved her with all my heart and am so grateful for all the things she has ever done for us. My heart goes out to my second family of many years as I know SHE was the rock. Knowing the strong children that she raised, I am sure the traditions and family gatherings will continue for many years to come. I love you all and am so sorry for your huge loss. May her strength in God help all of you in these sad times. Dawn
