Ant Miller passed away on Tuesday, he was a very amazing member of the FZ team a few year back, and will always be fondly remembered, we wish is family strength during this difficult time,below is a copy of his brother Brett’s facebook post, we will miss you Ants!
“ I’ve been asking myself, how do you go onto the biggest social media platform and begin to try explain to the whole world what you feeling, or what this angel of a man/brother means to you? The answer simply is that you can’t! Because I could sit here writing for two days straight and that wouldn’t begin to touch the surface of how much my boy, my partner in crime means to me. I will start off by thanking each and every one of you that have taken the time to write such incredible words about my boy and post old pics, some that I haven’t seen before. It’s clear when you read what people have written that EVERYONE pretty much felt the same way about Ants as I do: that he was the most gentle, loving, kind, sweet, sensitive, genuine, giving, selfless, warm human being walking the planet. Most of you weren’t around to witness him fight his disease so there are a few more adjectives that need to be added to the above description of my handsome boy: brave, courageous, strong, tough, patient, believer. Not once did he complain, or have self pity, I am still in disbelief that the purest soul on earth would have to be subjected to deal with the toughest pain anyone can go through. He handled the whole scenario with pure class and in true Ants Pants fashion literally caring more about how the person was that was asking him how he was. I say this to all of you, that although Antony was my younger brother, he was ten times the man I am or ever will be, I learnt from him daily, he guided and taught me wrongs from rights, what to do and what not to do, how to live the right way, how to do the right things, how to treat people, basically how to be a man. I woke up this morning with the harsh reality that I can’t call my boy and say hey let’s go for a coffee, a brekkies or just say hi boy hope you have a great day. No more talks while he’s driving back from work, no more movies together, gym, walking our dogs or dagz as he called them. My life has taken a huge turn for the worse, I have so many great people in my life that love me and close boys that love me as though I am their brother but Antony could finish sentences before I had a chance to finish them, actually a lot of the time I didn’t have to say a word, I could just look at him, smile and he knew what I was thinking or wanted to say. It’s been one day and I miss him more than I ever thought I would or could. At the darkest of dark moments in life, it’s extremely challenging to try find light but I want to end off by saying that watching hurt and deal with what he had to really does put things in perspective of what’s important in our lives and what has real meaning. We all stress daily about making money, traffic or any other outside factor (and I’m not saying life doesn’t have challenges) but what I am saying is that your health literally is your wealth. If you have that and a few people around you that love you, then you are rich and do have it all. For me Ants journey taught me that living in the moment is truly one of the most important things you can do for yourself. To try not let the small things get you down and know that as long as you not sick in a bed, you are having a good day and at least have the opportunity to change your day for the better. Antony Miller I love and miss you boy, I thank you for your unconditional love that you gave me daily and I will forever be proud to hold my head up high and call you my brother. I love you more than I can explain on a Facebook page. Give Mommy and Ray a huge hug and many kisses from me and one more favor b, it’s not to get me a coke from the fridge while I time you lol but please watch over me and help guide me to continue living my life the way you lived yours. You now can rest. I love you Boyyyyyyy”
