I Will Always Remember


My Dad, after enlisting in the British Army Corps of Engineers

R. A. Miller, born in Cuba in 1920 or thereabouts.

Orphaned before he was 10. Sent to live on the charity of relatives.

Lied about his age to fight for the British Empire in Africa.

A sensitive, artistic man, a poet, a farmer, a lost soul. The body persisted after his spirit had fled.

Died in Hamilton, Ontario, May 1, 2008.

Rest in peace, Daddy. You were well and truly loved.
