Dear Robert,
I just found out about Miriam and I am so sorry. I don't take the daily paper any more. You were fortunate to have had each other all those years. Cherish your memories. I lost Mama 3 years ago and Daddy has been gone 7 years now. I always appreciated you both coming to his funeral. I guess that is the last time we saw each other. Express my condolences to the family.

I have lots of great memories of my friend, stepmom, and most of all my sister in Christ, she has been in my life since I was 16 years old. We shared lots of laughter, and tears but most of all I was able to share and spend time with this beautiful lady over the years. SHE is loved by many and will be missed terribly so, but I for one knows she lives on with our Lord and Saviour. No matter what time of the day or night if you were part of her life she always wanted to take care of you and do for you, never wanting anything in return. Even if she didn't know you, she would help you in any way. Her heart was full of love for everyone. Miriam I am going to miss seeing you and our talks we would have but I am so thankful that God gave you to us and this world for 90 years. So rest high and show your love in heaven like you did here on earth..Shine, shine, that twinkle in your eyes down on me from the skies so I can still make my way to the milky way! I love you Miriam for as long as I breathe.
Always
Vera (stepdaughter)
