Nettie Miller

Aug. 27, 1955 – March 24, 2014

My best friend, Nettie Miller, passed away on March 24, 2014. There are no words that make this easy for anyone that knew her; everyone that knew Nettie loves her.

So let’s have a celebration of life for Nettie on Saturday, June 21, 2014, at 184 Gas Court in West Rifle. Starting at 4 p.m. until we stop the fire and stories of a wonderful woman that touched so many. Please join us for memories, food and friends. Bring a side dish, chairs, tent and/or camper. Should be plenty of room for all.

Nettie, I love you and miss you so much! You are everything to me! I am so glad you are not suffering anymore, but now it is our turn to suffer without you!
