Dan Miller is no more

Dan pix
It is with deep sadness that I report to our readers that my good friend and fellow editor of this site, Dan Miller, has passed away.

Those of you who have been with the site over the last three years know  how important his contributions were.

He will be sorely missed by all of us.

May he truly rest in peace… – JW

I received the following from his wife: 


Dear Joe,
Dan asked me to communicate with you should he not make it through the latest of his health problems.  
He felt a deep connection with Isreal, with Warsclerotic, and with you, Joe.  
Please forgive my delay in communicating with you.  It, as you must know, has been a tremendously difficult time for me.  I needed some time to recover even the tinyest bit of perspective.
Please keep him in your prayers.
Best,  Jeanie
Here is what I wrote to our families:

Dan and I started our adventures together almost 26 years ago. Over the years, we’ve laughed, we’ve cried, we’ve won and we’ve lost. Always, our

​mutual ​

love and respect made it possible to overcome the inevitable obstacles that present themselves over a lifetime.

Dan died last Sunday afternoon. I will miss him forever. He has preceded me in this last and greatest adventure of all.

As was his wish, I will spread his ashes over the finca he loved so well.


Rest in peace

​ and
Namaste, My​Darling

    One of the worst pieces of news in a long time. Dan was one of the early supporters on my blog, and it was always a special day when I earned a like or comment from him.

    He will be sorely missed, and my condolences to Jeannie and the rest of his family.

    Rest in Piece, my friend.

    I am very saddened to hear of Dan’s passing. He used to follow my blog and click “like” on all my posts and that made me feel like what I was doing was worth something. I will miss his long rants at his blog where he often managed to end on a humorous satirical note.

    Rest in peace Dan.

    I was so sad to read this news. Jeannie wrote a similar letter to em and it came like a punch to the stomach. Dan was such a strong supporter of Israel, and greatly encouraged me in my blogging, always urging me to post here, and sending me items of news that would interest me.

    The world has lost a wonderful man, a gentleman and a supporter of Israel and the Western world in its fight against jihad.

    May his memory be for a blessing and may his family find comfort in the good work that he did.
