Muriel, I miss you! So many good memories sitting on your comfy couch debating politics with a cup of tea and cinnamon coffee cake muffins from BJ’s. To me, you will always be next door sitting in your favorite chair watching the news hearing Emma in the kitchen tip over the dog bowl while Michael’s outside mowing the lawn. God Bless. Rest in Peace.
