I am so sorry to hear of Miriam’s death but happy that she is now in Heaven with our wonderful Lord. I,ve known Miriam for many years. My parents moved to Richfield and Miriam and I rode the bus to
School and we attended the same church
for many years until I moved away from the
Area.

My condolences to the family who are grieving Miriam’s death. Love to you all.
