Well, it's been 1 year today since you've been gone. Our loving Pastor. Who tought us so much about how to live holy and acceptable unto God. You were like a dad to all of us too. The sadness of losing you still feels the same. We have had a lot of miracle take place in our lives and not understand why they started happening right after your passing. We had so many moments we wish you were here to see. But the best miracle of all is of you receiving your complete healing. And yet we still take so much for granted. It will never be the same down here on this Earth without my dad and without our Pastor too. We love you Bro.Mcmillon more than words can say. With love, Gordon, Rachel, Gabby and Derik.

To the McMillon family, my heartfelt condolences for your loss. Please find comfort in the knowledge that soon God will wipe out every tear from our eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.(Rev. 21:3,4) May this promise give you comfort now and a real hope for the future. My deepest sympathies.

How you make others feel about themselves says a lot about you. Steve had a way of making others feel significant, even a punk neighbor kid. It's been years since I've seen him, but he and his family hold a special place in my heart. His life was a blessing, his memory a treasure. He's loved beyond words, and will be missed beyond measure.

To our loving Pastor, are hearts are saddened at your passing. Our family held you close to our hearts every single day. My son looked up you not only as a pastor but also as like a second father. Thank you for your burden for the lost and your fire that you brought to your church. You were one of the most genuine lovers of Jesus that I have ever met. We had great times of fellowship and laughing and enjoying your company. Thank you Bro McMillon for your faithfulness to serving God and encouring your congregation to be willing to do whatever it takes to make it to heaven. As our hearts are filled with sorrow, we also know that our Man of God has received his joy and deliverance I'm full. We look forward to seeing you again on that great day that our Lord and Savior comes. God bless the entire Mcmillon family and prayers for strength and encouragement during this time and for the days to come.

Bro. McMillon was not just our pastor. He was our friend. He always encouraged Peter in his writing and was probably his biggest fan. The last service we were in together was a powerful service. Bro. McMillon encouraged us ladies to worship and the Lord really moved. Some things we don't understand but we still must trust the Lord and draw nearer to Him. That's what Bro. McMillon would want.
Love and prayers,
The Ronhovde family
