Visitation is scheduled Friday in the rotunda of the Maryland State House, where the body of Thomas V. Mike Miller is lying in repose. He died last week at the age of 78 from cancer.

Miller was a state legislator for 50 years. A Democrat, he served as president of the Maryland Senate for 33 years. He announced he was stepping down from the post in 2019, but he remained a senator until December.
