I didn't know Illinois State Police special agent Rodney T. Miller well -- never met him and only talked to him on the phone half a dozen times. But I knew I was talking to a real pro and man of integrity.
I last talked to him on Wednesday of last week. On Friday, he died in a car accident near Champaign, leaving behind a wife and two children. Judging from the turnout at his funeral Monday in Decatur, Miller touched many lives in a positive way.
