Miriam's Art Work & Mimento

Miriam turned even the simplest gesture of sending a greeting card into something special,
always taking the time to make individual cards for everyone. Before her death she had hoped
to start her own business, Mimento, producing handmade cards. Her family have taken up this
idea and hope to develop it further. For more information please visit:


All proceeds from the sale of the cards will be donated to the Miriam Hyman Memorial Fund
which is currently supporting the work of ORBIS UK (Charity No. 1061352), a charity which
aims at eliminating avoidable blindness globally, helping people to see clearly again.

One Year On

On this 1st anniversary of our loss of you Miriam, I would like to remember you; your vibrancy, sense of humour, friendship and radiant smile. This day is very very vivid in the memories of us all, and what then unfolded, I still cannot believe we went searching for you on Promrose Hill, just hoping to find you, or someone who had seen you - it all seems so real, yet so blurred! My thoughts are with your closest: your mother, father, sister and friends - you are missed, loved and thought of - and one year on never ever forgotten. Rest peacefully. Much love ... Paul

Returning to the park and silence
Gathered friends breathe silent air
Two minutes for our hearts to beat together
Warm winds to gently blow our hair,
Spirit hands that touch and leave a trace
Upon our our lips, as we remember
What words cannot embrace

A year has passed since we were reunited
With you, within these moments
We have travelled far
Reconnect us to your spirit somehow
Return to us in quietness as before
By the souls degree of separation
Your life silence now the cities roar

We wait here for the next communion
Within this hallowed piece of ground
Holding up each other in the sadness
As you would have wanted
You become the stronger spirit, silently
Two minutes and it is unbroken
Though our knowing hearts may disagree

Those who are loving and loved remain immortal in the thoughts and hearts of those whose lives they touched.

I remembered Miriam with a friend today. I had not seen Miriam since the year we all spent in France during university. Despite this, I would like to share with you how I remembered this remarkable individual with my friend because, reading through this website, I am struck by how all who came into contact with her seem to cherish her for the same reason: her kind and loving nature. I remembered that outstanding individual's unaffected hospitality, kindness and generosity of spirit and her simple love of life - it was quite infectious and I think it is largely because of her that we spent those halcyon days together in the South of France.

She truly was one of those rare treasures: genuinely caring and such a positive influence: I am honoured to have known her.
