    My condolences goes out to Preston Henderson’s Family. Preston was a very dear friend. We worked together many years at Saint Luke’s. Early mornings it was just me and Preston . Never a dull moment there was, when I was around Preston. Preston was a kind hearted -happy go lucky kind of guy.Preston always tried to make people happy. Preston would even exaggerate things to get a laugh out of me when we had a very hard day at work. He would always say “Well big Sis,we made it THRU that again.? I will always remember the good times.RIP my dear friend ???

    Preston, we will truly miss you at all of the horse events. I did not realize how long I have known you, since you were a student at Paseo High School. I will always remember when Twin City Riders Saddle Club rode as security at the Kansas Speedway and the fireworks went off un-expectedly behind our horses and they took off with You, Rick and Me, and Anthony said ” we looked like the Jesse James gang”, and those horses did not stop until we got back to the trailer. Your comment was “What a ride, We rode those horses like real cowboys”. Rest in peace my little brother, Mr. Garrett is up there waiting on you to give him all the latest news, and will probably having you clean that heavy saddle of his.

    Love you.

    Just saw Preston a couple weeks ago & he was saying family needed to get together more than just at funerals. He spoke at our Aunt JohhnieMae & cousin Johhnie David, “Too Sweet’s”, services. Now it’s his services, it’s unbelievable but it’s God’s plan. We may not understand it, but I pray that we Honor Preston’s words & began to see each more often than at these occasions & tell each other we love one another, no one is promised tomorrow. To Aunt Gloria Jean & Family, u have my deepest condolences. To entire Miller family, I love u. God bless u all & may u forever cherish Preston’s smile & all the love, memories u share forever! He will be missed but never forgotten! Rest in Heaven, Cuz!???

    Preston, I will always remember how you make everyone laugh; the party did not start until Preston showed up. You loved to dance and will dance with someone or by yourself, it did not make you any difference, you just love having a good time no matter what. You will always hold a special place in my heart not only because I’ve known you for years but because your first name Preston is my maiden name.
    Rest well my friend, until we meet again, keep dancing and keep em laughing.

  53. Toni Gethers-Ford on June 24, 2017 at 11:34 am

    My deepest condolences to the family. I first met Preston back in the early 80’s through my cousin Gary Brown. Later on in time we crossed paths working at St.Lukes Hospital. When you run across Preston get ready for gut busting laughter. As times went on we’d connected again. He’d come to the salon and sit for hours with his sis/dear friend Regina Lewis. Sometimes I’d cringe when I’d see him coming through the door (In a good way)because I knew we’d never get done because of all the laughter, his dancing, singing, poking his lips out and stomping around the salon in those cowboy boots truly putting on a show. ? I have nothing but good memories about this man who ALWAYS had something nice to say rather it was a post on FB or face to face. I was able to see your last dance/jig at Regina and Eric’s wedding and who was pumping you to keep going? Me and Myron…Lol! My God “Cowboy” you will be missed. ?

  54. Shawn Rodriquez Morris on July 3, 2017 at 12:01 pm
