My name is Dallas Milam; I am the only daughter of Terry Milam. I did not know my Grandpa Royce, but I saw him once, at my dad's funeral. I just want to say, God Bless him and his family. I may not know him, but I can say, he's covered in God's warmth and love; this isn't the last we'll see of him.. one day, we will all join him in Heaven. My condolences to everyone he loved.
