Mr. Miller was my next door neighborhood in Stone Mountain. My mom and dad built our house next door to them on Fairforest Drive. We grew up with Mike and Tracy and our families even vacationed together in Florida. Great man, great family, great memories. So sorry for the family's loss. Reply to this comment

Skip will be missed greatly. He always welcomed me to his home. I will remember how much he loved (and spoiled ) his beagle Buddy, what a die-hard Braves fan he was (even when the team wasn't very good), and how he shared his love of guitar playing with his grand daughters. Reply to this comment
