I was so shocked and sad to hear about Miles' tragic passing. Miles was such a good person. Miles worked for me as a landscaper here in the Ashley Ridge neighborhood. He was willing to work hard and put in the extra effort to get things done right. Miles was so likeable. I will keep you and your family in my heart - lisa
