I always remember how kind and hospitable Mrs. Mueller was to her daughter Kathy's friends. I was one of those friends. SHe always welcomed us crazy girls into her house and was always interested in what was going on with us, She chaperoned at least one of our summer beach trips. That took some courage! l
Later on, she and my mother played bridge together at the Columbia Bridge Club. MY mother enjoyed her company there. God bless Kathy and the rest of the Mueller family in their time of grief and rememberance of their Mom.
