  1. My condolences to the family. Miles was always helping others. He will be missed. Thoughts and prayers for you all

    Miles Anthony has been my neighbor for as long as I can remember. We were never close friends, but we would give a friendly wave almost daily as we passed by one another’s farms. A few times in a year we might stop and have a conversation about the grapes and what’s going on in the neighborhood. The thing is, I always knew without speaking it, that if I were ever in a bind, Miles Anthony would do whatever he could to help me out. I already miss that daily wave “hello” and that sense of security in having Miles as my neighbor. He was a good person and a good neighbor.
