NEIS, Miriam Anna, went home to be with the Lord on the evening of July 10, 2006. She was born April 24, 1988 in Whitehorse, Yukon and lived in the North until 1997 when she and her family, sister Rachel, brother Caleb and parents Angela and Robert, left the Yukon to make their home in the Lower Mainland.
Miriam loved life and gave her best in all that she did. Talent and promise marked her life. Her report cards rarely recorded a letter grade other than A. She was a natural athlete and over the years received awards and honour for poetry and art. In June of 2006 she graduated from Clayton Heights Secondary School, Surrey and went on to work with friends at Mary’s Garden near Morgan Creek.
Friends and family meant a lot to Miriam. She looked for the best in people and was always there to lend a helping hand or offer an encouraging word. She was loved by young and old. None of us will ever be the same; she touched our lives. She stood for and was a testimony to the Lord Jesus Christ and we thank the Lord for the gift of knowing and loving Miriam for the time she was with us.
No life passes without a purpose and we know this is all part of the Master’s plan. He doeth all things well. Her life has been as the fragrance of a flower carried on the wind, beautiful and fleeting. She was a masterpiece that God chose for His bouquet. Our hearts share the sorrow of the loss of such a precious soul but we do not mourn as others mourn. We know it is for a season. Lovely and sweet bud, death will never separate us. We do not say good-bye but only until.
“It followed the light through the crevice’s length and unfolded itself on the other side.” Excerpt from The Rose Beyond the Wall, A.L. Frink
