The first time I got "Millerized," in other words, when Gene helped me rework a story into something I couldn't recognize but was true to the facts and theme and was infinitely better than my original, I mentioned to him that, in ninth grade, I delivered a report to my English class on "83 Hours Until Dawn". "Really?" he said, and smiled. And went back to work on my work. I'm lucky to have worked in a time when a newspaper could keep a Gene Miller around...

I grew up in South Florida. Gene's amazing work on the Pitts and Lee case sparked my interest and passion in journalism. He was a blunt-force reporter. The Miami Herald was a blunt-force newspaper. No. B.S. Thank you Gene, for attracting me to a noble craft.

A legend long before he passed, who leaves a legacy to remind us that behind the blinds of today's globalized, .com world lurk the same humanity -- good and not so good -- that shaped it. Honoring that is the best we can do. And the "we" extends beyond the press club.

We pray that God forever bless the family of Mr. Gene Miller, his book turned the town of Port St. Joe Florida upside down and in those days it took a person with a lot of heart to do that. I should know it is my home town.

Many years ago--sometime in the 1970s--Gene contacted me while he visited Chicago and, over coffee, asked me about two thousand questions concerning someone or something he was researching. He never told me who or what it was he was searching, but when he got the answers he wanted he scribbled a brief line in a small notebook. I believe he got everything he wanted from me and I got nothing from him, which is the hallmark of a great reporter. When you add to that that he was a great human being you have a very special person. His passing was a deep loss to fine journalism. We need more of him, a lot more, and we need them now!

So many years later ... 1969 or 1970... I well remember the trip which Gene, Warren Holmes and I took to Raiford Penitentiary to interview Curtis Adams - he was the alleged perpetrator of the crime for which Pitts and Lee served many years on death row - their cause was another noble one which Gene and Holmes took on. What a fine and forthright man!

Well - this is long "after the fact," so to speak. I was actually just randomly looking things up on the internet when I came across this
guest book. Nevertheless, I often remember Gene with great fondness! I
actually did not know him that well but his kindness and compassion
were obvious to me!! I was especially impressed when he gave a gong that he had gotten in the Far East to his stepson Daniel when he was Bar Mitzvahed. Gene was without a doubt an intelligent, interesting and most importantly a caring man! I really AM sorry we could not keep him around a little longer - especially so he could be with Caroline and Daniel!

Two days ago, as I was driving in my car, I was thinking about Gene Miller and his wonderful relationship with my mother, Janet Chusmir. Then this evening, quite by accident, I came across this Guest Book. I'm sorry that I had no idea, or I would have written sooner. My deepest condolences for the loss of a great journalist, and a great friend of the Chusmir family. However belated, my thoughts and prayers and with you all.
