I was saddened to hear of Miles' passing. I met him only a few times, at his cabin along Pine Creek. He was a kind, welcoming and generous man. May he rest in peace.

We send our sympathy to you. John and I always believed that Miles was responsible for starting our son on his path to become an architect. Miles happened to see one of Mark's drawings from his high school drafting class and suggested that he apply at Walter and Jackson's for a summer job. From that job, Mark realized  that he wanted to go further with his education. Mark had great respect for Miles and his exceptional work ethic.,

Miles was always kind to me all those years when he was a customer at the bank where I was employed.  

With our sympathy,

John and Alice Myers
