Jim and Jill Miller


When asked to describe Good Shepherd, Jill Miller says “inspiring” because of the courage of patients, residents and their families to persevere.

Jill, a retired nurse, first learned about Good Shepherd from a coworker when she was working in the Allentown area. Jill and her husband Jim, who now live in Florida, have been loyal donors for more than 20 years. They continue to be inspired by the stories they read in Sweet Charity, and enjoy knowing that their gifts are supporting patients, residents and staff.

After donating for years, the Millers decided to include a gift for Good Shepherd in their wills. According to Jill, “Good Shepherd not only supports health and function but also brings joy into the lives of its patients and residents.”

“Everyone you talk to has something good to say (about Good Shepherd,)” adds Jim. “We wanted to be involved even in a small way.”

When Jill and Jim reached out to Good Shepherd to complete their plans, it also was an opportunity to share details of their gift. Providing this information to Good Shepherd gave them peace of mind, knowing that their gift will be received and used according to their wishes.

Recently, the Millers added another gift to their plans by naming Good Shepherd the beneficiary of a retirement account. They like the ease and simplicity of arranging this type of gift. “We enjoy knowing that we’re supporting people who are working hard to achieve their goals,” says Jill.
