Memories Timeline


  1. My Dad, Francis Huntley of Fairview, was in the Army Air Corp. too and went to Mars Hill in the early 40s. He finished at Furman after the war. He and your loved one may have had classes together at some point or their paths may have crossed in the war. Mt deepest sympathy to the family.

  2. My deepest sympathies to the Miller family. I’m so sorry for your loss. Losing a loved one in death is a devastating experience, and it can leave us crushed in spirit. However, at Isaiah 57:15, here Almighty God Jehovah says, ‘I reside in the high and holy place, but also with those crushed and lowly in spirit, to revive the spirit of the lowly, and to revive the heart of those being crushed.’ God notices your suffering, and through his purpose he has provided a beautiful resurrection hope that you can have faith in. (John 5:28,29)

  3. We knew Floyd through his lifelong friendship with Howard M Pinner, my Dad,also from Candler. Howard was also a Pilot in the Army Air Corps during WWII. Howard and Jo enjoyed getting together with Floyd and Margaret . Our deepest condolences to the Miller family. We know he will be greatly missed by you all.
