To know our Mother, Mariam, was to know the true meaning of Love, Faith, and Compassion. Her unyielding devotion to our Lord Jesus Christ emulated through her every moment she was on earth and unto anyone who knew her. Her heart was always open for anyone that needed a mother, a grandmother, or a friend. Mariam cherished her children and family and she was the pillar of strength and wisdom to us all; old and young alike.
