Yes Nancy was disabled from an auto accident 20+ years ago. Bless her heart she got back to work after 5-10 years of rehabilitating but as she got older her injuries became too disabling to work.

Generally speaking, it is a poor idea to give a lot of personally identifiable information on Topix. That can include what specific information you disclose and the screen name you choose for yourself. Victims and their families deserve what shreds of privacy they can preserve. Many people can piece two and two together quite easily from posts left by several different readers. Think before you squeak.

Careful Sam, there are certain people on here who think they have the right to know every single shred of information about these kinds of events simply because of where they live and don't mind gossiping about it! They get pissy when you question there rumor mill.

My heart goes out to their family.

This thread got off topic starting with post #5, which is a big step around here!!! Usually it's off topic and bashing starts by the 3rd post. SS is correct,as well as the sarcasm of dd. Now you'll have to prepare for wrath of animal control to put in his 2 cents worth.

Wouldn't that be post #6 with the names being posted? It's great to start reading that other people care about a family's right to privacy.

Thank You for your response. I was sure it was the same family,But I had lost contact with them years ago and I wanted to be sure. I was not trying to be disrespectful to anyone and my heartfelt sympathy goes to their family.

Yes, the local Miller family sorely needs its privcy. Unfortunately two of its daughters continually drag the name out into public shame.
