המקום ינחם אתכם בתוך שאר אבלי ציון וירושלים
My heart breaks for you and yours especially since we have lived through a daughter with a heroin addiction. Losing a child is the loneliest, most desolate journey a parent can take, we are with you in this heart wrenching times.
I have such fond memories of Miriam, I always saw a beautiful human in her, one with depth and sincerity. I remember when her class took on a daily project of drawing character pictures of me in cartoon form, example laughy taffy jaffee, or any absurd thing especially about my love of coffee. Miraim was a key player and submitted many pictures to the collection. She was a free spirit and her inner beauty shone out to all who took the time to see. I know that Miraim was in my daughter Peninah's class and they had just spoken a little while ago.
I personally know that it is easy to blame "us" however, I say don't as it benefits no one especially since I have heard over the years about your families efforts and dedication to help Miriam.
Our heart and souls are with you, she was a sweetie and pure soul.
please reach out if you can.
Where are you sitting Shiva?
