To the family of Muriel
She was my sister-in-Law for so many years but she was also my best friend. I learned so much from your mom she was almost like a mom to me
after Larry and I were married. She was so talented, sewing, crafts and
boy was she a great cook. If you left Muriel's table hungry it was your
own fault. I know she will be missed by all of you but she and Jesse are back together again. I will not be able to attend the funeral because I have
a eye appointment for cat surgery but you will be in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. Love all of you.
