I think back very fond memories of uncle Amos. I still remember his visits to Idaho and his visit here with Roy. I very much enjoyed my visit to Lamar that I took with my nephew Max. The highlight of the trip was our visit with uncle Amos and the wonderrful stories and history that he shared with us. I will miss you uncle Amos! You are the very last of your siblings, I am glad that you made your goal of 100 years. My very best of wishes to your wife and family.

My family and I send our sincere sympathy on the death of Uncle Amos. I have very fond memories of him and the family when we came to Lamar to visit Grandma and Grandpa Miller. With Amos living right next door to them, we always got to enjoy his humor and ornery teasing with us kids. We lost our mother (Goldie Mae,Bucky,Newingham Dunnihoo) in June of this year. It's never easy to say good-bye to family. Amos kept the Miller longevity going with 100 years. Know it was a colorful and wonderful life. God's blessings, peace and comfort to all.
