    Condolences to all of you.
    Mirriam was a special person to me.
    Our pathes did not cross very often in the past few years, but she is someone I will never forget for her kindness and many other attributes. Visited her in Fletcher Village while she was there and missed her when she left.
    She also raised a wonderful family.
    I will always love her,
    Irene
