Muriel was a dear friend of mine at Brookdale. I enjoyed sitting and talking with her in the dining room and on the front porch. I also liked playing bingo with Muriel. Muriel loved to win bingo games especially if the prize was candy. We were two of a kind. We were very much alike. I will miss Muriel very much.
