I was a patient of Dr Miller when I was diagnosed with Leukemia in 1990. I was 38 yrs old with 3 young children and was devastated by his Diagnosis. From our first meeting in the ER, Dr Miller treated me with compassion and instilled in me a hope for my future. He recommended I go to Seattle for a Bone Marrow Transplant with my Sister serving as my Donor. After a successful treatment, I returned to Evanston Hospital for follow up with him. 22 years later, I credit Dr. Miller with my miraculous recovery.

May he rest in eternal peace.

We met Harry and Lucia six years ago on Monhegan Island where they hosted a Sierra Club work group for a week. We were struck by Harry's warm sense of humor and quiet, thoughtful way. He led us out each morning to the work site and taught us how to use the mechanical chipper.

One of the pieces of equipment we had to buy were chaps to protect our legs from the barberry thorns. We were thinking of wearing the chaps to Harry's memorial service but thought better of it.

We got to know Harry and Lucia better back in Evanston where we got together at Le Peep or over a bowl of soup at their apartment. We are sorry to have met him so late in life. It was our pleasure to have known him.

I had the honor of working with Dr. Miller while I was a staff nurse on 1 West at Evanston Hospital. As I assumed other roles at the hospital our friendship continued. He was truly one of my favorites. The world has lost a star and I a friend. May he rest in peace. My sympathy to his lovely wife Lucia and to his family he loved so much.

I first met Dr. Harry Miller when I was a resident at Evanston Hospital. Not only was he an excellent and caring Physician, but a true friend and a physician that I always admired. I only can hope that I will continue to practice medicine the way he did, caring and compassionate. He will be truly missed. I am sorry I will not be able to make the service on Saturday
