  2. To Delores’ Miller Family,

    My sincere and deep condolence to your family on her passing. I’m still heartbroken about her death. We were good friends when we were in college at Gallaudet University in Washington DC. She was one of dear friends of mine.I saw her at one of our friend’s funeral about a year ago. Had a nice visit with her. I’m glad I had the chance to see her one more time before she departed. I feel comfortable knowing that she is in a better place with the Lord. May she rest in peace. With much love, Jack

  5. I have always enjoyed having Alice around. I got to know her when I was in New Orleans. We always had a blast time going to Catholic Deaf Center, French Quarter and deaf club way down in New Orleans. She taught me about LSL and their culture. Most of all, she cooked great foods. I will sorely missed her cheerfulness and politeness. May the good Lord takes care of you always.

  6. Alice and I spoke a few days before her passing and she was looking forward to doing so many things. I was shocked and saddened to learn that I have lost a good friend. I will hold tight to memories of her for comfort, and ask you to lean on your friends and family for strength, and always remember how much she loved all of her family and friends.

  7. Alice Miller had a huge heart of Gold. Her smile was terrifically infectious. She was a beautiful soul to friends she truly cared for and respected.
    I had her catered at our home when she was a professional Chef. Our friendship lasted a lifetime based on our mutual interests. Mostly our life of fun and encouragements. She’d happily interpreted when I didn’t quite get it.
    She gave me two gifted dog pins when Mimi and Andre passed on. We exchanged fun messages along with silly loving emoticons. Shared our love for songs and music. It is cemented on fb message forever to hold and cherished. With my heartfelt tears Alice, I will miss our fun times so much. Rip Alice Miller. My deepest condolences to her loved ones.

  9. What a shock! She loved life very much as I can tell because she posted many healthy food information in Facebook. She was so generous to share valuable info also. She interpreted no limit for us at work in Bethesda, Maryland in 1990’s. She is always remembered for me. I found her in FB a few years ago, and joined her instantly because she was so special to me although I am straight. I admired her very much, and she is unique. Goodbye, Alice ILY.

  10. ALICE!!!!!!!!!

  11. Alice was a very dear friend and I miss her terribly. She was always helpful whenever a friend or family member needed comfort. She had a very positive memory of her parents and loved her sister, Sharon, deeply. Alice cherished all of her longtime friends and remained close even thou she lived miles apart. Her sudden unexpected loss was a shock to all of us who knew Alice. I feel blessed to have known Alice. I know she is one of God’s Angels and sometimes I feel like she is looking at me with her twinkling eyes and a big smile just letting me know she is in a better place.

  12. I was deeply saddened to hear that Alice passed. She was a great friend to my mom and to me. I will remember her smile, her laugh, and her great enthusiasm. She loved to garden and introduced me to fresh watermelon with mint leaves on it. Alice helped me move to Houston. I will always remember her kindness.
