Muriel was one of the kindest sweetest most gentle women I have ever been blessed to know. I'll always remember her ready smile, with the little giggle always ready to surface. She was always my go to person for prayer. I've learned so much from her life of faith. Thank you, JESUS ,for her life well lived in our midst.
