Condolence Messages

  1. Dear Miller family. I am so sorry to have read of your loss. Please accept my sincere condolences. I would like to share something that I have personally found to be comforting. It is found in the Bible at John 5:28, 29 and Revelation 21:4. These verses tell us that soon God is going to bring about a resurrection of our dear loved ones as well as do away with all causes we have for suffering, including sickness and death. Knowing this has always comforted me and it is my hope that these thoughts will comfort your family also. I have found additional comfort at

  3. Uncle Claude, I will love and miss you for the rest of my life. It has been a pleasure to have had you as a part of my life. I will miss that soft sweet voice you had on your good days. I will also laugh at the strong hard voice you had on your bad days. I know you are in heaven showing off that big smile. Tell grandma I said hello and not to make your punishment so hard this time.

  4. My dearest Claude, god only knows how much we will miss you. You have touched our lives in a way that no one else will ever understand. I’m sad because our children will miss their father so very much but I’m happy because I know it was a celebration when you walked through those pearly gates and got your angel wings. I know the first thing you did was flash that beautiful smile of yours. Rest assured and know that I will always take care of our children. I will never let them forget how much you loved them. Thank you for being apart of my life for so many years. Thank you for blessing me with two wonderful children and most of all, thank you for being you. I love you always,

    Nateeka Miller

  6. I would like to express my deepest sympathies to all of Claude’s family and friends. I have worked with and known Claude for 8 years. Over the years I had become quite fond of Claude and truly did consider him a friend. I always have considered Claude to be a stand-up guy that I could always depend on. I will miss his smiling face and deep laugh.

  10. Sorry for your loss from Patricia Smih and Claude’s other sons Joseph and Claude smith

  11. I would like to express my sincere condolences to your family. Like you I too have suffered pain for the loss of a loved one. I would like to share a scripture that brought great comfort to me at Revelation 21:3,4 where it states, “…And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The Bible is a great source of encouragement during times like this. May the “God of all comfort” (2 Corinthians 1:3) comfort you.

  12. To the Miller and Conley Family, please know that my prayers are with you at this time.
