Not just a Number: An open letter of appreciation to a local, family-owned company

Dear Editor:

27 years ago I was fortunate to find not just employment in our community, but as it has turned out, an extended family in the very best sense of the word.

Being a single father of two boys, going through a 10-year bout with cancer, having the peace of mind that my job was not going to disappear was and is a great comfort. Recently, as my fight with cancer has escalated, the advantage once again of working in a family environment has hit home. I have been and continue to be truly blessed. I can only hope that my company and others like it will continue to survive and thrive – not only for our local economy, but for our nation’s ways that so many gave their last best measure to preserve. (I am a Vietnam Veteran.)

The life I have enjoyed and those of my fellow employees could not have been possible without the values and compassion missing from the heartless corporate world.

Thank you J. P. Miller & Sons for always being there.

1982 Deerfield High reunion coming in October

Dear Editor:

I am currently on the class of the 1982 Deerfield Beach High School 30-year reunion committee. Many of the students and teachers of the class of 1982 are still living here in Florida. Our reunion is planned for Oct. 5 and 6 and we want to get the word out to individuals we have not been able to contact. For more information, call 561-223-3935 or email dbhsclassof82@gmail.com.
