Miriam was in the Highlander Sunday School class and we loved her so much! She would always request #701 (When We All Get to Heaven) when it was time to sing before class. She was a ray of sunshine when she came into the room and welcomed everyone and always had great input for our lessons. I will miss her smile and her sweet hug that she gave me each week. Praying for her family as you mourn the loss and rejoice for Miriam...because she was ready to rejoice with her loved ones that had gone on before her.

Meriam will be missed by her many friends in the Highlander Sunday School class where she could always be counted on to contribute to lively discussion and to offer a heartfelt prayer. Our sincere condolences go out to her family and friends.

What a sweet light Miriam shared with all of us. She was a joy and a great fan--not only of the Razorbacks, but also of our Holy Lord. She followed Him well.
Praying for all and lifting her dear friend Gail up, also. Miriam is now face to face with the One we love. I am grateful for her life.

What a privilege to know Miriam. I met her in bible study. It was a blessing to be in her class several times. I will miss her sweet smile and the knowledge she brought to our class. Rest In Peace my sister in Christ.
