Miller family paying special tribute

MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK)- Due to unfortunate weather conditions, the Memorial Ride that normally takes place at the end of Reconciliation Week was canceled. That still didn't stop the Miller family from paying tribute their love one.

At Forest Lawn Cemetery, the Miller family had a service to honor their father that was a pastor, husband and friend.

"We feel that it was fitting that we show respect to him. It is also a good time to remember the good things about him, we sang one of his favorite songs and we feel blessed to have other people to come out," said Chairman of Reconciliation Week, Stacey Miller.

Stacey Miller, gave a prayer to all the life's that were taken in the 2003 Lockheed shooting.

A rider that has been attending this event for several years, showed up and said he wouldn't miss it for anything.

"I have experience death in my own family and I would appreciated if people came for my love one's as well. I can't expect anyone to show up for mines if I can't show up for anybody else," said local rider Adam Williams.

15 year old Liana Logan shared her thoughts about her grandfather.

"I’m honored to be here to celebrate my grandfather and his legacy. I'm getting to know more about him and how spiritual he was," said family member Liana Logan.

"He definitely was the kind of man to be the first one to extend his hand. He didn't meet a stranger. He move throughout this community as a business man, as a friend, and as a mentor to many," said Stacey Miller.

The event is meant to give support for the victims of the Lockheed Martin incident 16 years ago.
