I met Cliff and Marie at the young age of 14. I thought they were the sweetest couple. They reminded me of Barbi and Ken! As the years passed, anytime I would see Cliff, I would always find him to be such a kind and gentle man. My heart breaks that he had to suffer for so long. My sympathies to the entire family. I know he is now enjoying his eternal reward with God. Rest In Peace for all eternity🙏🏻

Dear Cliff,
To say that our hearts aren't broken, is an understatement ! To lose someone like Cliff who has always been kind, gentle, and caring, to all that he knew, is something that will be terribly missed and thought of everyday . Although, Cliff was my brother-in-law, he was always thought of as my brother. Never in the 57 years that I've known Cliff, had we ever had a disagreement or quarrel. Without sounding cliche', Cliff was the best son, husband, father, grandfather, and brother, that one could ever imagine. He left this world the same way that he came into it, without ever complaining or asking of something for himself. The world has been a better place with Cliff Miller in it, and I along with others, have had the privilege of being part of Cliff's life ! Cliff, we will never forget you and will love and miss you always !
Love,
Brother, Susan, and Joseph
