Scott Miller Family Memorial Fund

$53,359 of $45k goal

Raised by 549 people in 41 months
We lost a dear friend and the world lost a brilliant and talented musician suddenly on April 15, 2013. Scott Miller left behind his beautiful wife Kristine and daughters Valerie (age 10) and Julianne (age 7). In addition to his musical gifts, Scott was also a valued, talented and dedicated engineer with Mark Logic in San Carlos, California. Scott was the sole provider and dedicated father and husband to his girls and Kristine.

Scott's family and friends are bereft and grieving, but many dear friends have expressed their concern, commitment and dedication to providing some financial support for the educational future of Valerie and Julianne, and in honor of Scott.

Whatever gift or donation you can make is sincerely appreciated. If you are unable to donate, just hold the love for this man and his family in your hearts; it means a lot to all of us.


In love and peace,


Jozef Becker and Kate Flynn Becker and Nan Becker

Dear Friends,

This has been a very sad and uncertain time for my daughters and me. You have all provided comfort with your support to help secure the future education of the children Scott and I together called our greatest joys in life.

It is clear from the messages I've received, the sentiments I've read, and the expressions of gratitude to Scott for touching your lives, that you appreciated Scott as a gifted artist, talented engineer, respected citizen of his community, devoted father, and as a supportive husband and best friend to me. The loss of him from this world is profound. My heart aches not only for Scott, my children, and myself but for all of you as well.

I am extremely touched by your thoughtfulness and concern and am eternally grateful to you. Somehow the world manages to go on and I wish you all some peace for the journey.

Thank you all very much.

Love,
Kristine

We are amazed at this testament to how many lives Scott touched and how loved he was. Social media significance is debatable but it clearly allows for people to gather and make a difference. Know that your giving matters to the Miller family. And thank you.

Lolita Nation was a big deal for me when it came out, but it was Scott's blog that really hooked me. Suffering with a nasty cold in 2009, I stumbled across "Music: What Happened?" and it nursed me through the next few days. Like Scott, I also made yearly comps, and for years I toyed with the idea of sending him one, especially since we loved many of the same bands. I regret never doing this and telling him how insightful his writing was. I'm so sorry he's gone, and I wish your family well.
