In more than 8 months the Larry Miller extended family has managed to keep
secret the cause that took the late Larry Miller's son Roger Miller in
Augusr of 2013. Can a family be so powerful that they can quash a Death
Certificate? I doubt anyone would care what killed this man, while expressing
sympathy for the sadness this event caused his wife and children. However by
locking tight the information on the man's passing the Miller's, led
by Gail, only encourage the rawest speculation. That speculation is likely far
worse than the real story. There are times in one's life where they have to
accept that they will be subject to the public being aware of their status;
Birth, Death, Arrest. Many will have other information,, good or bad, revealed
but these three are guaranteed to be public. I am saddened that this very public
family apparently doesn't trust their fellowmen to be non-judgemental and
sympathetic. There are underestimating you and I.
@ InspectorC.It is only human nature to be interested in someone
being born, location, life, marriage, career, children and then their passing
away. In fact dieing is a part of life and yes we should celebrate their life
but it is only natural that we are curious to find out how someone died. It is
never enough to know that they passed away and it is even more of curiosity when
they die so young.So telling someone to get over it and not be nosy
is like saying do not bother with life and keep your head in the ground.I hope this makes sense to you. RIP Roger and whatever was the cause
of your death i hope it was fast.
To those who think it's strange that readers would want to know the cause
of death, I offer this: Since it is customary to list the cause of death when
reporting that a person died, of course people want to know, especially since he
was young. And curiosity will naturally be aroused when the custom is set aside
and the details are not published. I understand that the newspaper can publish
the fact the a person died, but, given that they honored the request from the
family to not divulge the cause of death, it follows that they also would have
honored a request not to publish details of the funeral if such a request had
been made. I'm sure that anyone who is a friend or associate can
reasonably contact the family to find where and when it will be held. So, we
get headline news about this man's passing and then again about his
funeral, but without the customary cause of death, and we wonder why people are
"I wish the Millers success to continuing to put their spin on this so that
no one will ever know the facts." This is none of your business.
Why are SO many readers obsessed with knowing the cause of death for Mr.
Miller?!?!If he had died in a car-race crash, that would be all over
the news. If he had died "doing something out in public", it would be
part of the public record.Otherwise, let's ALL STOP being so
stinkin' nosey and morbidly-curious, and just let this family have some
peace, respect and privacy!!Get a life, and move along folks.
I've never read an obituary (this article is sort of like one) where they
have expressly stated that the viewing and services are for friends and
associates of the deceased. Are they anticipating that a lot of random people
may just show up to attend these services? Perhaps its the fact that no one has
mentioned how he died that may drive people out of the woodwork to show up to
the service to play detective and find out the facts. Some say why does he get
mentioned at all in a special article. It is a tragedy. Leaving 9 kids without
a father. I wish the Millers success to continuing to put their spin on this so
that no one will ever know the facts.
southmtnman,I would like to know the same thing. He was the same age
as me. Makes me want to cut back on the soda and join a gym.
How did he die?
