    So sad my dear cousin has gone, sending my condolences and best wishes to all her family and friends.
    I will always remember her as a teenager in Scotland when she sang and played piano, and sewed me a wee skirt when I stayed with her and her brother Norman.
    May she rest in peace,

    So sorry to hear of Miriam's passing. My Mum (her Aunty) was very fond of her and she was close to my older sisters growing up in Scotland. Lots of stories about her being a model & singer and always being glamorous! I remember (when I was a child) she always had sweeties on the dining room table and always seemed to be socialising and smiling. Sweet Dreams Cousin Miriam xxx
