On behalf of my father Verlin Miller, I would like to express condolences on the loss of Don. Dad was his friend for decades and they both worked at Craig Trucking where they first became acquainted. Later Don drove for dad’s company. And later yet, they talked at least once daily. Dad sure missed Don but he just recently passed too. Two more hard working, patriotic American WW II veterans and Masonic brothers are gone.
