Words are not enough to express our families gratitude to Stephanie Miles for her unselfish, gentle and kind care for our mom. But most of all the love she so generously gave. Stephanie helped us make it possible to care for mom at home.

Mom’s granddaughter Shawn was always available to mom day in and day out.

Mom’s other team members were Shanna Smith, Leslie Hopkins, Nita Crouse and Nancy Brown. Mom’s family cannot thank you enough and you will always be in our hearts.

As a life long member of the Blacksburg Christian Church her wish is in lieu of flowers contributions be made to the church 240 Watson Avenue Blacksburg, VA 24060.

A drive-in service will be conducted on Sunday, August 23, 2020 at 1:00 p.m. at Blacksburg Christian Church with Rev. Gary McCoy and Rev. J.B. Beane officiating.

Thanks Mom, for loving us as high as the sky, as deep as the ocean, and as wide as the whole wide world…..
