I remember Muriel so well. They came to Craig to candidate the weekend of the Big Thompson flood. I was a young wife and mother with an 4-month old son. I thoroughly enjoyed her during their years of pastoring in Craig, and the times I saw her since. She was totally devoted to her family, her church, and her God--the epitome of a pastor's wife. I learned so much from her, and often looked to her for advice.
The last time I saw her, she was faithfully caring for David, a few months before his death. My thoughts have drifted to her so often. I will miss her, but what a place that was prepared for her in Heaven!!! My condolences to Dwight, her granddaughter, and other family members and friends.
