Condolence & Memory Journal

I am writing this for my father-Roy Summers-who was a very dear friend of "Pappy Milam." He wanted me to tell the family how very sorry he is about your great loss. He wanted to come to the funeral-but with my Mother's health- he could not make it... He and Pappy had been great friends for too many years to count. He will be missed so very much-especially by his good friend Roy... All my love to his family...

Uncle Harold was a wonderful man. Always ready to help anyone.
If we were outside when he drove by, he would always wave or stop by for a chat.
He loved sharing stories from the past.
He will be missed. RIP

Dear Nona and brothers, I was very sad to hear of your dad's passing. He was a great friend to my family always. He was good to mom when she needed him the most. Please know that I will be praying for you all as you pass through this sad time. You know that your dad is in the sweet arms of Jesus, and most likely is having a great time with those from his past. May God be with you.
Your childhood friend,
Donna Withrow Miller
