Miles always was the sweetestest, kindest man to me and my parents. I lived in Denver Ia and babysat for the children while they worked or went places. My mom who is now gone also watched the kids during the day. I never heard my parents have a bad word to say about Miles. I know they even had a social relationship with him and he was always a kind man. May god welcome him in his loving arms and he be at peace thru eternity.....
