Thanks for dropping by! Wayne Miller and I were married 19 October 1965. Our first child, Bobby Wayne Miller was born Feb. 16, 1966 and did not survive. Billy Wayne Miller was born 23 August 1967. His sister, Brenda Gail was born 30 October 1970. Brenda has given us Ashley and Bobby. Ashley, was born 3 March 1989. Bobby was born just 15 months later 28 May 1990. Brenda has a brand new addition to her family and they now live on a 5 acre tract that I deeded to her a couple of years ago. Brenda and Danny are brand new grand parents. Oh my goodness, that makes Wayne and I GREAT-grandparents!!! Ashley presented them with a grandson on the 6th day of July 2007. His name is Rylie Ashton Wade. Rylie and his parents live with Brenda. I really enjoy 'nussing' (that's what my grandmother called holding a baby) that baby and then giving him to his mother or grandmother. Lately though it seems that Rylie has found his way over to my house and he comes and stays with his NeeNee and Grand Daddy some and we enjoy every minute of it.
Rylie is now crawling and trying to walk. He's really a hand full because he is wanting to find out about everything that he sees. Also, someone has taught him to make a sound like he's driving a truck and he usually has a need to do it when you are trying to feed him. If course you know where the food goes when he does that!
Brenda is employed in the Medical Records Department at Rennisance (sp) Hospital and Danny has worked for Central Freight Line for several years.
Due to some health problems I have suffered after being involved in an automobile accident in 1999, and another one in October of 2005, I am unable to work or do much. I volunteer some of my time to historical and genealogical records preservation. I am also an Arbonne Consultant and am currently trying to work my way up to getting the white Mercedes.
Our son, Billy, married a young woman named Crystal. She had three children, Cody, Brittany, and Parker. Macie Jordyn Miller was born 31 March 2003. In 2002, Billy adopted Parker so now he too has a boy and a girl. He and his family currently live in Tyler. Billy was in the Army for six years and learned that he could live far away and we would still be here when he needed us. He took his Boot Camp training at Ft. Dix, New Jersey (that was a trip when we visited him for graduation). He then served in Ft. Benning, GA and spent his last 'stretch' at Ft. Polk, LA. His wife, Crystal, has lived most of her life in and around Tyler and Chandler, TX.
I have "fooled" with animals my entire life. I operated a very successful business in Canton, Texas for 12 years. Health reasons and the desire to home school Ashley led me to allow my "adopted" daughter, Cynthia Miller Davis to take over the business. I have extensive training in all types of software applications. A friend and I currently offer free beginner computer classes in various locations throughout the county. I have not been able to do nearly as much since another auto accident caused me more back and neck problems. I now am very limited to the time I can spend at a computer (I hate not being able to "compute" for hours at a time).
Mr. D has held various positions with law enforcement agencies through out Van Zandt County, Texas. He began his career in law enforcement in 1975 at Grand Saline Police Department. After four years with Grand Saline and attaining the position of Asst. Chief, he left and went to work for the Van Zandt County Sheriff's Department. Within 2 years he had become Chief Deputy for Sheriff Travis Shafer. He left the sheriff's department in 1986 to go into private investigation. In December of1988 he returned to the Van Zandt County Sheriff's Department as Chief Deputy to Sheriff Pat Jordan. In December of 1991 he became the Chief Investigator for the Van Zandt County District Attorney's Office for Criminal District Attorney, John A. Sickel, Jr. In 1994, when a new District Attorney was appointed, the entire staff of the Dstrict Attorney's office was relieved of their duties. "Wayne" and another employee of the DA's office went back in to private investigation. He still mainains his police officer's certification and offers Concealed Handgun License Courses in a "class" room that we have converted from a 2 car carport. This room also functions as our "computer room".
Wayne now works in the Asset Protection Department of the Wal-Mart Distribution Center in Terrell, Texas.
We live on a small farm outside the Salt City of Grand Saline, Van Zandt County, Texas. This farm has been in my family for generations. My ancestors originally purchased the land with "share cropping" proceeds.
