Memories Timeline


  1. I love you so much Daylan ! I will surely miss you you were always so kind to me .You visited me at my home all the time by driving a long journey !

    A Memorial Tree was planted in memory of Daylan Jacob Miller
  2. I had the privilege of calling Daylan my closest friend, we always referred to each other as brothers. It was an honor to attend many adventures with him, to celebrate life. He is loved dearly.

  3. When I think back to my childhood and high school years, the memories often involve Daylan, Zach, Junior, and Dillon; some of the best years of my life. Daylan was one of the smartest, most creative people I knew. I only regret the lost contact over the last few years. Even though we got into a lot of trouble together, and fought like brothers, I always loved him and still do. Thank you for being a part of my life.

  4. Day… I called you today to talk, to have our usual hey hows life conversation and I was frustrated when you didn’t pick up. Today I learned that you have been gone from this earth for some time. We never figured out how or where we met but I do know that we stayed friends for 10 years because we intentionally put effort into talking to one another and being there for one another. Most of our friendship was late night calls that could last up to two hours. We would talk about relationships, the past, the future, and go down rabbit holes about anything and everything. You were always there for me. Life never dealt you an easy hand but you would consistently show up wanting more from life. It was an honor to watch you grow from a kid into a hardworking, open minded, and loving man. You talked so passionately about your business and helping people. You were constantly learning and evolving. I will never be able to fully explain the love we had for one another since the moment we met. It was an unconditional love – no matter where we were, what situations we were in, or if we were friends or lovers – and I will carry that love with me forever. I miss you, Day. I hope where ever you are now, you are without pain. I’ll be loving you from Earth until we meet again. ❤️
