I am Mary and I want to send you and your family my heartfelt condolences. I took care of your wonderful father, John. He was always a delight to see and talk to. He would tell me stories of his family and his wife and always spoke of them with a gleam in his eye. I will miss him so very much. Know that he made an impression on so many of us that came in touch with him. I will remember him fondly.

Dear family of John Miaso, I was a caregiver for John, your dear father. He was a gentle giving man and very kind hearted. He loved watching the birds and squirrels and making sure they were fed. He had a witty spirit and made me smile many times. He loved his children as they loved him also. Ron was a blessing and always there for his father and Jackie to, she called every single day to chat with her father. He loved hearing her voice. John had a great memory and knew all his appointments. He wanted his hair cut at the barber so he could get all the gossip around town – the barber teased him because he had a different women “every time” he came to get his hair cut. He thought that was hilarious. He loved going to church and when he couldn’t go anymore he listened to it on TV and he sang when there was singing. I loved hearing him. He had a beautiful home and he wanted it kept that way he said his wife taught him how to pick up after himself – I thought that was hilarious! He did a great job. He always said “now you drive safe out there and I hope I see you real soon. I enjoyed John – he was a blessing to me and I will miss him dearly. I am glad now he will not have anymore worries.

My deepest sympathy to the Miaso family. I first met John and Angie at my place of work. They came in to buy flooring and window coverings for their new home. I have to say meeting them was the brightest time in my day. They were a joy to meet , just wonderful people. I enjoyed working with them and was so glad they would stop by the store just to say hi. I would run into John from time to time in the grocery store and we would chat. His sense of humor was so fun. They were just such dear people, I am sure they will be so missed by their family. Love and prayers. I think of them often.
