Christi was three days old when her dad, Dan Miller, would sit her in her bassinet and read her the sports section of the newspaper. He loved the Dallas Cowboys and that is what he would read to her, she said.
"He would talk to me about the team, player positions and would say that they would play other teams so they could have others to beat."
She knows this because she had people in her life that kept the memory of her father alive.
"I wish I could remember and have my own memories, and not the memories of someone else," she said.
Today was his memorial and friends and family gathered at a funeral home in Lake Worth to remember him.
Miller's mom invited me to attend the service. I am glad I went, as the outsider, I felt a bit reluctant to go, but as a reporter I wanted to go and meet the friends and family that loved him so much.
Attending the memorial today will ease the nervousness I have for tomorrow. I don't know what to expect. Some of his military friends will be there, the full military honors will also be done.
I've spent time talking to his mom, wife and daughter that I somehow feel I know him. The love that each person had for him today was illuminating the day.
I hope tomorrow is the same.
