    Love and prayers to all of Muriel’s family. I have fond memories of my neighbors across the street. No matter where I saw your Mom, she always came over and visited with me. Keep the memories of her in your heart. May God’s loving arms embrace you today and in the difficult days ahead. God Bless.
