Uncle Ron, Victoria, Kelli, Ron II and Scott, my heart is broken for all of you. I loved Miriam from the moment I met her when I was a small child. She was always sweet, warm, kind, lovely and personable toward me. Everytime we spoke on the phone it was a joy and blessing. It is my sincere hope and prayer that as time passes, wonderful memories will sustain you, as well as the sure knowledge when we all reach Heaven, what a reunion we will have! I am grateful to God that her suffering is ended. Please know that my thoughts and prayers will be for and with you for much time to come. With all my love,

Ron ll, so sorry to hear about your mom. My heart goes out to you and your dad. What a shock to hear. I was setting at the pc last night when I got a call telling me about her. I cried remembering the funny things about her. She was always a great listener and story teller. Remember talking for hours with her on the phone back in the day. She made me laught so hard. Again so sorry. My heart goes out to the family. Take care Ron and Mr. Atkinson.
