From Sandy's post on CML Support UK


I am sorry to inform you that Zavie Miller died yesterday from complications after a stroke some  8 months ago.
Zavie was an indomitable personality and will be missed by many in the wider global CML community.
We send our deepest sympathy and condolances to his wife Ida and his two daughters Mara and Sandy from all at the CML Support Group.
It is with profound sorrow and deep regret that we must inform you all that Zavie peacefully drew his final breath and closed his eyes for the last time on January 9th, 2012 at 15:21 with his wife and daughters at his side.

Ida, Mara and Sandy are deeply distraught and will be unreachable while arrangements are being made over the next few days.


With love,
Zavie's girls, Ida, Mara and Sandy


MILLER, Zavie. On Monday, January 9 2012, in his seventy-fourth year, Zavie closed his eyes for the last time with his girls by his side, after a courageous and determined 8 month battle.  Beloved husband and life partner of Ida for forty-five years, treasured father to Mara and Sandra Miller, cherished brother of Joyce Miller and lifelong friend to many.  Predeceased by his father Samuel Miller, mother Dora Miller (née Fefergrad) and brother Lionel Miller.  Zavie was an unfailingly devoted husband, father, brother, uncle, cousin and friend.  He touched the lives of countless people through his kindness, his photography, his calligraphy, his involvement with the PCG and the NGC, the SOGH and his work with Zavie's Zero Club which supports and advocates for members of the CML community worldwide.  His zany sense of humour, fierce love and respect for life are a legacy that will remain in our hearts forever.  Zavie's girls would like to thank all the friends and family who have
been by our side throughout every step of this journey.
