Miriam Kamai

July 26, 1950 - August 22, 2022

Her husband, her mother and her loved ones called her Dee-Dee. But her given name was Miriam. She never particularly liked her name. Miriam roughly translated means salty or bitter water. She felt it was a type of curse, an indicator of her life, and so it was. She was quite like her name. This woman of salty water, much like the tears, sweat, sea and even amniotic fluid, was buoyant. The names: Mary, Mere, Marie and Miriam are reminiscent, not of bitterness, but of the ups and downs of the sea and its tides.
