Statement from the Family of Roman Miller
SARASOTA COUNTY, May 22, 2019 – We are heartbroken over the tragic loss of our son, Roman Miller. He was a kind, loving, polite, energetic, generous and caring little boy who loved his family, friends and animals very much.
We would like to thank everyone at Brentwood Elementary and the community for their outpouring of support. We also want to acknowledge the first responders, firefighters, paramedics, doctors and nurses who treated our son with respect and care.
We are holding a vigil this Thursday, May 23 at 6 p.m. at Brentwood Elementary. Roman loved going to school and we are grateful to hold a service for his school and community. Attendees are encouraged to wear green as we say a few words and honor our son.
For those who contributed to the memorial along Webber, thank you. We ask that you use caution when visiting the site – we are concerned for your safety and ask that you not stand in the middle of Webber Street. Also, for those who have contributed to the GoFundMe and Meal Train accounts, thank you. Friends are hosting a fundraiser at Big Top Brewery on June 2 for anyone wanting to attend. Brentwood Elementary is also accepting donations at the school. We feel so blessed for everyone’s generosity and support.
Official services for Roman have not been finalized. We thank you for your continued good wishes and prayers and appreciate your respect for our privacy during this difficult time.
This statement is being sent on behalf of the Miller family.
