Our family lost a great man this week with the passing of my brother-in-law Roy Gene Miller. He passed away Monday at Scott and White Hospital in Temple after a lengthy illness.

He ran Gappy Miller’s Clip Joint in downtown Milano for many years. He will be greatly missed.

Funeral services were held Wednesday at Phillips and Luckey Funeral Home in Rockdale with burial in the Liberty Cemetery near Milano.

Our youngest grandchild, Hannah, will start her first year of school on Monday in pre-kindergarten. It’s hard to believe they are all growing up so fast.
