    Marian and i wish to express our sadness at the passing of Merl Leon Miller, Porky as we knew him. We never spent much time together, but I never heard anyone say a bad work about him. I know this appears sudden to those of us who were not that close, but it is still a great loss to us all. May God bless you and your extended family. Please know we share your loss.

    I knew Lurch in the early 90's riding with GWRRA. He was a fine and funny fellow. Rest in Peace my friend and may our Lord bless and watch over you and your family.
