Susan, Thanks for a beautiful tribute to “Gram” as that is what I called her and the way I knew her. I treasure the fact that she was able to attend and delighted in the wedding for Jerry and Sam in 2006 in Memphis. Wish I were there to celebrate a powerful life of love, family and grace. Give my best to all today, Martha
Susan, Thanks for writing this. Although Mariam’s obit was beautiful, you needed to be a part of it just as you were such a major part of her life for so many years. I read your email to me regarding your contributions to today’s celebration and I have to admit, while reading it to Dwight, my voice faded at the deviled eggs. I had to swallow hard. We wish we were there today to toast a truly remarkable, loving, giving woman. Hugs to all (you know who they are). Right about now I’m remembering the day you said “you should stop and see Mariam. She’d love to see you.” Why, oh why??? We can never go back, can we?
I love this. Miriam ran her life with her heart. Seems like she did what seemed right and comfortable, and that included not letting go of a great connection the two of you had, not to mention the strong grandmother connection. I was very touched when (long ago) my own ex-mother in law made matching dresses for her granddaughter as well as my little daughter from the next marriage. Embrace all those who seem like your family, Miriam had the right idea! Condolences for your loss. Marylu
