The article reports that the Secret Santa who helped Cimeri Miller was Larry Stewart, a wealthy Kansas City, Missouri-area businessman. He died last February 2007 of cancer, after anonymously giving an estimated 1.3 million dollars to the needy. He gave because he knew the pain of poverty himself. Sometimes he worked with social agencies, but often he roamed the streets, handing out cash to those in need.
