  • Mies Family,
    We are saddened to see of your father’s passing. How lucky you all were to have him so long and all the wonderful memories you must have. We will keep you in our prayers as go through this difficult time.

    • Thank you Doug & Mary Ann. Yes wonderful memories. Your thoughts and prayers are very much appreciated.

  • To the whole Mies family, my sincerest and deepest condolences. I just found out about the Paul’s passing. You all know that both your dad and your mom were my second set of parents. I loved them both dearly and I celebrate their beautiful lives along with you. In our childhood, Lori and I were best friends and our parents were best friends. I’ll always cherish that. Of course, our dads were co-workers at Perfection while it was in town. Later, I often played golf with Paul. He was such a character and such a delight. I stopped by to see him a few years ago when I saw him outside his house on Church Street. I think it was not long after your mom passed. He was approaching 90 and was heartbroken, but the man was sharp as a tack. I think he was getting ready to play golf (his other great love, LOL). And boy, did he love your mom. What a love story that was, and your family was their world. The times they I had the pleasure of spending time with Lori, Angie and all of you will be cherished times in my life. God Bless You. — Bob
