    Sorry for your loss. I had the pleasure of meeting Greg when he came to South Dakota to a family reunion. My mother Catherine Miles Millar was gifted a quart of his wonderful honey. May God’s peace be with you during the time.

    To The Gregory A Miles Family
    We are The SD Miles family of Onida SD. Our mother Dianne Miles Dalton has been in contact with Greg over the years most recently a few years ago regarding the planning of our SD Miles Family Reunion. He was a huge supporter of us having one and was hoping to make it here again one day. We had many lengthy visits with him on the phone. From Greg’s extended family to yours we are so sorry for your loss. Way too young to leave us. May God Bless and keep you at this difficult time.

    Greg and I were brother Knights but more importantly we were best friends. We shared in each other’s good and bad times. We will miss him so much. It’s true that you don’t realize what you have till it’s gone..
