On behalf of the Catholic Diocese of Cleveland, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy to the family of Sam Miller on his passing today. Cleveland has lost a man who is best described as a servant leader, a man who worked tirelessly to help others and build bridges that brought people together throughout our community in friendship and dialogue. Sam was a dear friend of the Catholic community in Northeast Ohio as he was dedicated to help strengthen Catholic education in the diocese. Throughout his life Sam acted as a catalyst for cooperation between the Jewish and Christian communities. His generosity and philanthropy to our diocese -- including Catholic schools, seminaries and Catholic Charities -- has had a lasting impact. He will be deeply missed. May he rest in peace.
