Richard Miller was one of the finest gentlemen ever to grace this world because he was just that...a fine gentle man. He had great character and a tremendous inner strength. His love for his late wife, Mildred, was boundless and unconditional. It was a great pleasure to work with him for many years at The H. T. Hackney Co.

The world is darker without Richard. But for those of us that knew and worked with him, his values, his intelligence, and his dignity should shine as a beacon and we should do what we can to be a reflection of his example.

My deepest sympathies to his family.

My Uncle Richard was a quiet gentleman. In my 55 years I never saw him get angry with anyone, or heard him speak poorly of anyone. He and Aunt Mildred were two of the nicest people I knew. They lived out their Christian faith daily. I am thankful for their impact on my life.

The world will never have a sweeter soul than my Uncle Richard. This man was precious to my family and will be sorely missed. I love you Uncle Richard and thank you for being a superior role model and father figure with your love and support. Heaven just gets sweeter and sweeter.
