Why do good people, like Alan Miller, have to die so prematurely? This community and the world is a better place because he lived. He was a positive role model for all who knew him. He was kind, loving, caring, compassionate, generous and always willing to be of help. Needless to say, he will be sorely missed. With deepest sympathy to his loving and devoted wife, Judy, his beautiful step daughters and their families. You have been and will continue to be in my prayers.

Alan Miller was one of the kindest, most thoughtful individuals I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. His sincere respect for others and his genuine love of life were evident in everything he said and did. Alan had an amazing ability to see the positive in any situation and it was virtually impossible to be in his company and not feel better about everything. He loved his family and always spoke of them with such pride and affection. His ever present smile, his grace and courtesy to others and his enthusiasm for the gift of life will be remembered as we mourn the loss of a truly good man...

We were devastated when we read in the paper that Alan Miller had passed away. We will always remember the patience that He had for my husband when preparing our tax returns. He was always pleasant and worked hard to get our taxes filed in a timely manner. He was one in a million in helping people with what they needed. Our condolences go to his wife and pray that God will give her comfort and peace in this sad and difficult time. Please know that we will miss him and his jolly manner.

Judy and family, Richard and I want to express our deepest sympathy. We came to know Alan when he was fresh out of Bridgewater College and had just started as a CPA at what was at the time Hughson and Elliott, I don’t remember the spelling. We often joked that we grew up together. We were so sad when Alan got sick and now with his passing. When we had major business decisions Alan took the time to listen to us and made us feel important. We will always miss his big hearty laugh and his giant heart. Alan was more than an accountant to us, we considered him a friend. He was a good man who will be sorely missed. We send our thoughts, prayers, love and support to each of you.

We were so sorry to hear of Alan's passing. Over the years Alan was our most trusted financial advisor. He was always professional but more than that he was a friend and colleague. We will never forget the discussions we had over JMU sports and travel to his beloved Hawaii. He made tax season a joy. We will miss him dearly. Mahalo and rest in peace my friend. Aloha
