    Sorry to hear about this loss but she is now in the arms of God with the rest of her family. I am sure she is with and visiting with the rest of the Miller clan that has moved onto Heaven. Sending hugs and prayers to her family that are left behind, just remember someday we will all rejoin them all in Heaven. God bless you all.
