    We are saddened by the loss of John. Our hearts go out to the family. Although we met John just a few times at Miller family gatherings we were touched by his love of people. We still have a photograph of John in Iraq surrounded by children that he gave us. May all the lives he touched be blessed.

    My condolences to John’s family and friends. I knew John when we were both stationed at Fort Campbell, KY with the 3-327th Infantry Battalion. He was a good man and a good Soldier. John always found the good side of everything. John you are gone too soon, but rest in peace. Battle Force!!

    Thinking of you and your family today. I never met your son but heard many stories that told how much you love him. My heart goes out to you. His little girl now has a special angel to watch over her.

    John Miller was my best friend of 30 years. We got in trouble, got out of trouble. Acted like kids and learned to become gentleman together. We learned, lived and loved as friends. I have had no closer friend than John Miller in this world. I cannot tell you the pain of loosing my best friend. I can tell you this. There is no finer man on this earth I could have called my best friend. John Miller is and remains the finest individual I have come to know in my 40 years. I will miss him, without his presence there is a void that cannot be filled. I love you John. I will catch you on the other side my friend.
