    Muriel was a very dear friend of mine. I met her during our Bible outreach on Wednesday evenings at Village Senior in Warrenville, SC. She attended faithfully every Wednesday when she was feeling well. Muriel was such a sweet lady and she loved my three grandchildren, Hunter, Landon, and Aubrey. She would always make sure they had a sweet treat and a hug each Wednesday night! She was my card partner many times and loved playing cards with the her friends at Village Senior where she lived. We had many weenie roasts at my house with her friends and it was always a fun time! We will miss her dearly and know that Heaven is even a sweeter place with Muriel there! Blessed beyond measure to have called her friend. Until we meet again, Debbie Bowen, Jen, Brian, Hunter, Landon, and Aubrey Lee ❤️❤️❤️

    Deb,
    Your mother was a remarkable woman. She was kind, considerate and loving to all she met. I will always remember her kindness and soft spoken ways.

    I know your family will greatly miss her, but I pray she is finally out of pain and in a much better place.

    My sympathies are with you during this very difficult time.
