Wife of Goshen Murder Victim says she Lost her Best Friend

Posted:

Linda Miller, the wife of 58-year old Goshen College Professor Dr. James Miller, released a statement about her husband's murder. 

The following statement was issued on Miller's behalf by the pastor of the Clinton Frame Mennonite Church:

"Last Sunday I lost my best friend and partner in parenting.  Whenever I think of Jim I see him in heaven, standing without pain and smiling, his pain is over.  I am so glad that he is in heaven with our Savior.  The kids and I will miss him terribly, but we know that God is with us and will see us through whatever tough times lie ahead.  We will stand together with God trusting His promises.  We want to continue to live our lives to reflect God's love and mercy to everyone.  My life verses apply in this situation as much as they did years ago.  ROM 12:9-16 Don't just pretend to love others.  Really love them.  Hate what is wrong.  Hold tightly to what is good.  Love each other with genuine affection, and take delight in honoring each other.  Never be lazy, but work hard to serve the Lord enthusiastically.  Rejoice in our confident hope.  Be patient in trouble, and keep on praying.  When God's people are in need, be ready to help them.  Always be eager to practice hospitality.  Bless those who persecute you.  Don't curse them; pray that God will bless them.  Be happy with those who are happy, and weep with those who weep.  Live in harmony with each other.  Don't be too proud to enjoy the company of ordinary people.  And don't think you know it all!

Pastor Terry Diener says Linda is in the hospital recovering.  "Whenever I talk with her it's about how God is sustaining her, and how the community is sustaining her.  This is a very different role for Linda.  She's a very outgoing person, who cares for people, and she's on the side of providing care, now she's receiving care."

The Millers have three children.  Two of them are still in high school and living at home.  One is a senior, the other a freshman.  Both are in the band.  A friend of the family says they plan to perform with the band Saturday then attend their father's funeral Sunday. 

Members of the congregation urged the suspect to come forward.
