    Dear John and Harold,
    My heart goes out to you both. I have so many wonderful memories of your folks and especially the time your dad spent with our family when dad was dying. Herb brought so much laughter and a few tears to all of us during dad’s final days. I will always laugh when I recall Herb or dad telling the story of dad’s first day of school in town. How the “big kid” called dad “fatso” and when dad asked “who is he?” Dad was told “Hippo Miller” from that time on Hippo and FAT were fast friends. So many stories they shared over hunting, Fox Lake Ballroom and EGG TIME. The Legion will be a quieter place without them.
