Michael Miller, was gregarious, caring and was a cop from head to toe. The Branch of Drug Enforcement (BDE) was a small team, and we all lived and trained together in Artesia, NM. We were a Family. I still have the deployment sheet with everyones assigment for the operations we were conducting. I will keep it forever as a reminder, not of Michaels death, but of what he accomplished in such a short time on this earth.

I miss him dearly, and I am most certain that I always will.
