Condolences for Melvin O. Miller

Dear Lorene, Tammi and Terry, We were so sorry to hear about Mel's death. We have many good memories of him. Such a character he was. Great sense of humor, but you had to be quick and pay attention otherwise you would miss it. Know that we are thinking of you at this time of loss. Blessings to you all. Barb and Joe Kruse

We are missing Mel every day, his laughter, his awful jokes, his phone calls. Mostly just to check in, sometimes he imparted great knowledge, but often it was mostly b.s. We shared a lot of time together and became great friends over the last 27 years. We loved traveling with Mel and Lorene and have such fun stories to tell. Italy, Florida, Arizona, New Mexico, California, traveling along Route 66, Pie Town and all around the coulee region. From dyed hair to knocking off the priests headpiece in Sante Fe at Easter Service, it was never dull with Mel around! We enjoyed many a great meal with Mel and always had to start with onion rings - just for Mel. He had such a joyful day on the flight in 2019 on the vintage plane that he trained on in his air force days (the best years of his life) !!! Mel always had a story and loved to get into a lively bantering, giving as much as taking. Mel loved big and cared for us as much as we cared for him. He loved Lorene with all his heart and showed us what it was to love family and friends. He was such a great friend. He has left a huge hole in our hearts. He is certainly looking down on us and giving advice to all who will listen up there. Lord, take good care of Mel.

"Uncle Mel". What wonderful experiences my family and I have been able to have with Mel & Lorene. From annual visits during my childhood to the most recent over Easter, 2021 Mel was a constant source of wit, wisdom & entertainment. In many ways he was larger than life -- always ready to participate in activities or engage in good natured conversations about life's many challenges. He welcomed me and my family as if we were one of his own ….. a trait I saw repeated with many others. He had a certain way to “light up” a room whenever he was present. As an adult, I try to emulate his faith to the Lord, his love for his wife and depth for which he cared for his children and grandchildren. He will be sorely missed on earth, but I can imagine the angels in heaven are rejoicing to welcome one of their own. I often “looked up” to Melvin Miller, and I am proud to be his nephew. God speed, Uncle Mel!
