  1. Sybil will be missed by her cousins-in-law, The Allen & Una Lejeune Reed descendants. Her sweet and loving personality endeared her to all. She and Tally generously gave their time to play my mother's beloved cajun music on her birthday for several years and for Mom's funeral she and Tally played and sang Mom's favorite hymns in church. Our family can only thank Tally for sharing her gifts with us. Remember Tally, the Reeds loved and prayed for Sybil. AND Tally, God will bless you for the tender care you have given to your lovely wife.

  2. So sorry for your Loss ! My prayers are with you during this difficult time! I have such great memories of "Aunt Sybil" the one who would send a wink if she saw I was uncomfortable or slip me a Popsicle just to turn my frown into a smile, give a hug if she saw I was having a bad day ! I remember a week or two of summer during my childhood when her home cooked meal was her way of showing her love! If all else failed she would sing my favorite song!! ( which only she knew) thanks for being such a Godly influence in my Life ! Rest in Peace ! Always in my memories ! Love Linnette

  7. So sorry to hear about Mrs. Sybil. My heart and prayers go out to you all. Love and miss ya'll. FiFi

  8. Uncle Tally and family, I am so sorry for your loss. I know she will be missed greatly. Aunt Sybil was always one of my favorite aunts (SHH)She was warm, loving, and fun-loving. My best memory of her was when I was a young girl. Our family had gone over to Aunt Sybil's house for Thanksgiving. She was so excited and welcoming. She told my mom that my sister and I could eat all we want (after we raided the snacks)"It was Thanksgiving," she happily explained. She showed us how to put olives on our fingers. 🙂 Amy Kibodeaux Marton

  9. She will be greatly missed by those who knew her. I have fond memories of staying in Sulpher with Aunt Sybil and Uncle Tally when I was young. I remember that she gave me and Lunnette as many popsicles as we wanted when we were at her house. As I got older, I loved listening to her music. I'm sure shes singing in heaven now. Thanks Uncle Tally for taking such good care of our precious Aunt Sybil! Prayers are with your family.

  10. Mr.Tally I am so sorry to hear of Mrs. Miller's passing. I noticed the cars at your house today when I went to check my mail and wondered why, now I know. Had I found out sooner, we would have come to your wife's funeral. Mrs. Miller was loved and you took really good care of her. Call me if there is anything we can do for you. May you find comfort during this sad time with your faith, family and friends. (your neighbor, Danna) RIP Mrs. Sybil Miller.

  11. So sorry to hear of Aunt Sybils passing. I have fond memories of spending time in Sulpher with Uncle Tally and Aunt Sybil when I was young. Aunt Sybil always gave me and Linnette (aka Gumby) as many popsicles as we wanted. As I got older I always enjoyed listening to the Millers sing their Cajun music and I'm sure she's singing with the angels in heaven now. RIP precious Aunt Sybil! Thanks Uncle Tally for taking great care of her these past few years.

  12. My deepest sympathies to Uncle Tally and the family of Aunt Sybil. While like Linnette I also remember unlimited popcicles, I had the honor of really getting to know this amazing woman while she helped me get through my early 20's. Aunt Sybil was a beautiful soul who was truly the kindest woman I have ever known. She was everything that God wants us to be… kind, loving, generous, caring, filled with joy and fiesty when need be. Family was very important to her. She is, and will always be a hero in my eyes. She prayed with me many times and I have no doubt that she is sitting with her savior, Jesus Christ, right now! Thank you to her family and wonderful caring husband for sharing Aunt Sybil with me. I am a better person because of her. Love you Uncle Tally!!!

  13. OUR THOUGHTS GO OUT TO THE ENTIRE MILLER FAMILY. MS. SYBIL IS POSSIBY THE SWEETEST MOM THAT I HAVE EVER KNOWN. SHE ALSO MADE THE ABSOLUTE GREATEST ICEBOX CAKE. SOOOO MANY MANY MEMORIES.

  14. Benny Kirby here, Uncle Tally, I had not heard that Aunt Sybil had passed away. So sorry to hear. Praying for you.
