My thoughts go out to the family of Phillip Miller. I was very sad to hear the news. I greatly enjoyed spending time with Phil when I lived in DC and was a member of Ring 50. He was always so friendly, full of joy and laughter, fun to talk to, and always made my guests feel so welcome. He will be very much missed.
