"Going to miss you so much my skut! The biggest heart I've ever known. You took fighting to a different level - always incredibly positive and a smile on your face. A cheeky and mischeivous side to you. You embrace every person and evety challenge in your journey. You taught me so much about cherishing every single moment in life. I feel humbled to have walked a journey with you. I love you so much! RIP," Miller wrote in his story.
