"Miriam would come over to visit my mom for a drink.  I remember her throaty laugh, and the marvelous green dress that zipped up the front.  Truth be told, I was a little in awe of her.  Even at a tender age, I could tell she tackled the world on her terms."

"Miriam (the older sister of Priscilla with whom I had become friendly), welcomed me into her home with a warm smile and a sense of humor atypical for the other mothers I met in town at the time.  I am left with the sense of having missed the opportunity to know a sharp, strong woman who fought to keep that twinkle in her eye and succeeded.  You are remembered fondly, Miriam ..."

"She was my mother, Earline Greer Harrell's first cousin. What a lively woman she was. Educated, gracious when needed but not unnecessarily so! Smart as a whip! We spent some time together in Alabama and she livened things up down here! Peter, I hope you read this! I remember you and your cousin Nafseka well! Much love and prayers! God bless!"

"The best of Mom was when she would take me for drives through Country and point out place's and there history. She always made history fun!
Pick a political topic with this women, you better have facts straight."

"I remember Miriam as mom to all three of you - keeping an eye on us when we swam in your pool. But "moms" were moms when we were children - we seldom thought about what went on in THEIR hearts - self centered as children often are!
Luckily, Per and I got to know Miriam later in life and I remember good lunch, drinks, conversation and humor."

"Just remember Miriam in my mom's kitchen at "the barn," her tremendous presence, loud voice and rollicking laugh, and my mother's enjoyment of her as a friend.  Our moms are both gone now..."

"I sat across the desk from Miriam for almost 15 years at Voices. She was outrageously opinionated but we shared the same opinions and got along fine. She was funny, hard working, generous, and didn't suffer fools gladly. There was never a dull moment with Miriam around. She was older than the rest of us but had the best legs in the office! Irrepressible, irreplaceable. She was a corker. xo"

"An avid reader, a writer, an editor, and lover of politics. She was a force to be reckoned with. I realize now, how little I knew of her outside her role as "Mom," and hope to read others stories and anecdotes about her here. R.I.P. Mum."
