Tributes

Grew in living near C H prior to moving to Missouri with my family in 1959. Many fond memories of my early years and time spent with C H. He was a great friend to everyone especially the younger kids in the neighborhood. Remember all the cork ball games and other fun we had. My thoughts and prayers are with his family. May the Love of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ richly bless you in this time of sorrow.

A great man. Glad I got to know Dr. Miller through WRMC and also bible study fellowship (Mary jane is my mom) Prayers are with you all.

We were blessed to have both C H & Carol as our BSF and Sunday School teachers for years. I loved how C H would get emotional when he spoke about Jesus. He was a real treasure and a true gentle man. How fitting that he went to be with Jesus while enjoying his passion for fishing.

We immediately bonded with the Millers when they came to Shaw AFB in 1973.After the military time we vacationed often at the Gulf coast. Georgia and Arkansas are geographically apart but we always felt close to the Millers. We last talked during the recent cold weather there. We loved C.H. -- our boys even remember some of his clever asides. He was such a pleasure to know. Gone but never forgotten. We love you Carol . Gail & Jay

C.H. was a revered leader, teacher and Elder for our congregation. He will be missed by all of us and remembered fondly for the love he had for his family, his intellect and sense of humor, as well as his great appreciation for music.

My first memory of Dr. Miller was of him singing “Turn Your Radio On” while performing surgery at UAMS. He was a resident surgeon. I was a student nurse. My condolences to his family and dear friends as they “Do not mourn as those who have no hope.” Excerpt from I Thessalonians 4:13.

Dr Miller always had a smile and warm greeting. He treated my wife and son and had a very good bedside manner. We were glad to see him enjoying his retirement. He will be missed by all who knew him and we wish special condolences to Carol and the rest of his family.
