Its was a pleasure meeting and working with ER on a professional level. I enjoyed the stories we would exchange and getting a laugh out of him. My condolences to his sons John and Rob. Your fathers life exhibits a great American story and in his passing may we all aspire to achieve accomplishments as he did in his lifetime.

Mr. Miller was truly a lawyer’s lawyer with a filing system like non other! He lived a life full of adventure with a true passion for his profession and love for his family. My sincere sympathy to John and Rob on the loss of your dad.
