My Dad hit me with the news and I still cannot believe it. Heaven gained another angel. You were such a great man. You were a man that you could count on. You were a man that you could look up to. You always had a smile on your face. We all had some good times together over the years. You will be greatly missed Boyd Miles. 💔
