Dear Miller Family, I awaken each morn saying prayers for Cole and Luke and Landon and Tricia. I pray for your family that the love you have for each other will help you during this time of heartbreaking sorrow. I have good memories of  you and your sons showing me your portable lab and Cole actually demonstrating with soil from the land. Whenever we talked you always showed such pride in telling me all that your sons were doing. I pray for you all often each day that the love you have for each other will help ease the agony in your hearts. In time, I hope all the beautiful memories you have of times being with Cole will bring you peace. The love you have for Cole and his love for you is eternal-forever and always.
