To Miriam's family,
I am sorry for your loss.I remember Miriam when my mother Yvette Mitchell also worked at Mt. Carmel.It was actually your mom who showed my mom how to make me a purple pair of mittens with a matching scarf. By the third pair of mittens my mom was finally able to make them on her own without any help thanks to the knitting lessons from your mom.
Deepest condolences,
Terri Mitchell Chase
