My dear dad affectionately called her Junie, but I called her Mother. Her name was Miriam June, and quite the mom she was! Her last sweet words to me were, “I will be praying for you, I love you.” I loved her energy, positive attitude, strong faith in God, and love for her family. On the early evening of October 14th, heart failure squeezed her final breath at 100 years of age. Shortly after she passed, I gently stroked her soft hair and held her still-warm hand. 🌹As tears flowed down my face, I thanked her for being the best mother I could have ever had. My tall, sharp-minded, statuesque, elegant and beloved mother resides in Heaven now, in the presence of the Lord, joyously reunited with my precious dad and all of our cherished loved ones that went to Glory before her. I can picture her clearly now, young again, bathed in glorious light, and riding on a Heavenly horse with a big smile on her sweet face.. Ride on fair lady, ride on…

I was sad to see that Miriam passed away.  When someone reaches her age, we almost think of them as immortal.  I always enjoyed any visit I made with her as did any other nurse from our office who saw her.  She was truly remarkable and will be remembered fondly by all who crossed her path.
