    Dorothy was such a sweet lady my grandparents did a lot of things with Herb and Dorothy including square dancing. I’m the grandson of Bob and Sue Palmore and I used to do some yard work for her after Herb died. She was a funny lady and awesome to be around. We will miss her, I hope her and Herb are in a square with my grandparents now dancing away. To Connie and Ronny we are sorry for your loss, but she’s in a better place now.

    Sincerely from the Palmore girls Pam, Peggy and Patti and me Shannon son of Pamela

    Dear Connie & the entire Waddell family,

    I was so sorry to hear about GG’s passing. I wish I had been able to meet her, but her personality came alive to me through all the funny, sweet stories. I know you will miss her dearly. My prayers are with you all.

    My dear, sweet Great Aunt Dorothy was a beautiful song to life. She never ceased to inspire me with her passion for reading, her consistently lucid memory and her faith in God. Any time we visited Indiana from California, we made it a point to see her. With a keen sense of humor, she always lit up the room with her stories and got us laughing every time! She will remain an enduring inspiration to all of us who knew her.
    I raise my glass in celebration and in honor of the unique and incomparable Dorothy Miller. Cheers to you!
    With love and sympathy to Connie and her family,
