Bill and Family,
This is with great sadness. No matter how much we prepare for such tragedy, we as humans cannot accept death because it is so contrary to life. We do have hope based on the Bible that our dead loved ones will rise again and be better than before.
May you all be comforted in the knowledge that Miriam is now at peace not suffering anymore.
You are very much in our prayers.
John Ashielfie.
