My husband and I would like express our sincere sympathy to the family and friends of your beloved Miriam. Although we hadnt had the opportunity to meet Miriam personally, we do understand the pain of losing one so dear to our hearts. We would like to share with you comfort we have experienced from Gods word found in 2 Corinthians 1:3,4. Our Heavenly Father is a wonderful source of comfort, for he is always there for those broken at heart because he truly cherishes you, especially in this time of sorrow. ( Psalm 34:18, 1 Peter 5:7) Please take a few moments, share your memories with those who surround you, for the memories shared are the ones most truly cherished, may they bring you comfort and peace as you begin to heal. Take care of yourselves and each other during this very difficult time.
