Sorry to hear of Marlins passing, I too am glad for the time I had to spend with Marlin working at Graham County Electric. He was always such a hard worker and willing to help others. Together with his wife they raised a good bunch of boys that are 2nd to none. May the Good Lord bless the Miller family during this difficult time in their lives
