Dear Mel, & Matthew & family,

We are so sorry for your loss.

Miriam was truly so unique, a real down to earth person. Wonderful personality, and so sweet and caring.

We pray that you hold to those memories to get through these rough times.

May you be comforted that she is in heaven and all tears are wiped away!

Miriam continues to be remembered each day by all of us who knew her and loved her. You are in my prayers, as you endure this painful time. I know we won’t miss Miriam nearly as much as you, her family, do but she touched so many lives and provided support & guidance to many of us. I thank God that I was blessed enough to have known her.

We lived at each others home growing up, I always considered you as a little sister. We always had fun, laughed and got into trouble most of the time. I will cherish every memory we shared. I miss you very much and there’s not a day that goes by that I do not think of you. I will love you always and look forward to the day that we will be together again. You are finally home with your family, at peace and full of joy.

Your loving cousin – Lourdes
