The Miller Clan has lost an irreplaceable and irrepressible human being. Jim, our patriarch cousin, embodied so many diverse and special qualities. He loved us and we loved him. Sending thoughts and looking forward to sharing memories with the family he cherished.

What sad news. Dr. James Miller was an outstanding leader, professor and psychologist, and one of the most caring and compassionate human beings I have ever known. The field of psychology lost one of its greats on January 5th. His work and the positive impact he had on so many, his students and his patents, will always be remembered. My heartfelt condolences go out to his wife, Dr. Kathy Miller, and his entire family. Warm regards, Michael Oberschneider
