Paula Parker 4/18/2017 11:43:37 PM Miriam is a close friend that will have always have a special place in my heart. From the very first day that I met Miriam at Loral, she has always been very kind and loving towards me. I am truly grateful that Miriam accepted as part of her family, I will cherish every memory. The cherry delight dessert is one of my favorites. Thank you Hammond family for sharing you Mother with me. Paula Kipp Mullis 4/19/2017 9:20:43 AM A true lady in every sense of the word. Gracious, kind and welcoming. Though she was part of my life for a short time, she left indelible marks on my heart. Chris Krafft 4/19/2017 9:50:51 AM Shawn & family, So sorry to hear of the loss of your mother. Hearing you speak of her throughout the years I know she will be greatly missed. Cherish the memories you shared. Sandra Sommers 4/19/2017 5:02:50 PM Thinking especially of Miriam's family at this time of the loss of their sister, mother, and grandmother. I know they can find comfort in the life she lived because sweet Miriam enjoyed people. She was truly interested in everyone she met, befriending most, listening to all, laughing with us and, of course, baking for us: My favorite: her brownies! Today I am remembering the times I spent with Miriam and praying for the Lord to bless her family as they grieve. Sandra Sommers Sandra Ussery 4/20/2017 9:37:20 PM Aunt Miriam was a very sweet woman. I loved to see her smiling face come to Florida. Me and Roger would take her to get Strawberry Shortcake that she loved! God Bless the Hammond Family. Love Sandra & Roger Frances and Bill Hammond 4/21/2017 10:24:15 AM Janet;Steve;Scott;and Shawn: We are very saddened by the death of your mother-and we know you feel a heavy loss. It seems so unexpected. She was a wonderful and kind person-always fun to be with. We had many good times together. I remember when she and your Dad got married in 1952, and when I first met her in 1953. She was always a favorite to us. I couldn't attend Judy's service because of surgery; and I am so sorry we can't be there Sunday because of complications that prevent me from standing/sitting very long. We hope you understand. Our prayers are with you. May God Bless. Love, Frances & Bill Lynn Epolito 4/23/2017 5:49:07 PM To the family I was saddened to hear of her passing. I worked with her and loved talking to her and hearing about the family she so loved. She had some fun and funny stories to tell (all good). She was so easy to work with and great at her job a true asset to our team.May you be comforted and find peace in your loving and fond memories of her. In Love Lynn Epolito Susan 4/25/2017 6:25:45 PM She was as much a mom to me growing up as my own mother. She will always be in my heart along with all the Hammonds she left behind. Susan Julian
