Here it is, four plus years since Dr. Jule P left the constraints of life .
and I was just talking about him this morning. I was so happy we talked after he left St Louis.
As well as being a great therapist, he was my friend. He was wise enough, along with his intelligence, to think out of the box. When I have problems to work through, I do not take them to the mattress, I still take them to Jule P! For all the many years I knew him, he never called a shot without it hitting the bullseye. I keep him on my shoulder to turn to and consult. To be missed and admired by so many people must make his family so proud!!! For me, he will not die .....I miss terribly!

I worked with Dr. Miller at the St. Louis Psychoanalytic Foundation in the mid-1960's, along with Dr. Hart and Dr. Dewald.
He was always very kind and happy. He and Dr. Hart were almost always together.

I emailed him a few years ago, around 2008, and we went down memory lane talking about our years together at the Foundation. I'm glad I had that opportunity.
He shall be missed!
Much love to all his family,

Your patients, your peers and your friends and family would all agree--you were an intelligent, open-minded, lovable, fun-loving, kind-hearted, caring soul. You, dear man, lived life fully to the very last day. I miss you so very, very much, my sweetest, kindest admirer and dear friend. Life without you in it has dug an empty place in my heart.

Dr. Miller was the most caring physciatrist I've ever had the pleasure of being his patient. He always listened, gave me excellent advice and truly cared. That's extremely rare these days, I felt so close to him that on my last visit before he moved to Mi. I gave him a couple parting gifts and cried on my way home. I know I will never meet another man as intelligent, caring, giving and trusting. My deepest condolences go out to his family. He will be dearly missed by so many people.

I loved Jule and will treasure my time with him. He was warm and down to earth, rational and pragmatic with others but dreamed he'd find a system to beat the market, A fine psychoanalyst
and maybe the only one (at least in St. Louis) who was a boxing champ in the Navy! I will drink tonight to his memory. Saul Hopper

He was a good friend to me. Since he left St. Louis, I've missed him dearly. I'll remember him forever.

I had two seminars with Dr Miller. With clear language, he presented material, which to us was new and complex. We could apply the teaching more readily as a result.
I learned a great deal which helped my own practice.

His contribution to the St Louis community
was considerable.

May his family find consolation in this fact.

Jule was of course an intelligent, independent and deep thinker. He was also a caring and gentle individual who exuded the kindet warmth. The lively conversations and merriment enjoyed at Fordyce Lane, the country, Pomme, etc., with Kitsy, Tommy, Kate et al will be sorely missed. My heartfelt condolences to Jule's entire family.
