The Miller Family-
Amy and I are remembering you in our prayers, this week and the weeks to come. We are traveling to Terre Haute to be with our daughter on Friday which doesn't allow us the opportunity to pay our respects. I have extremely fond memories of "Mr. Mayor" as a child. To this day, I can hear him telling me, per a shirt that I once wore, to "Go climb a street, Hoggatt!" I'll hold tight to the memories, as I know you all will, too. Thanks for sharing him with me and with all of Union City!

Judy and family,

It was with great sadness and disbelief that we learned of Perry's passing. He will be missed greatly. God got a wonderful angel when he selected Perry. Perry was always kind and made one feel important. He will be remembered for such. What a great legacy! Our prayers and thoughts are with you. May God give all of you the strength and courage to get through this most difficult time.
