I am very sad, that my friend and former next door neighbor has passed. She and I always had a lot of laughs about our neighborhood.
From the moment I met Muriel, I felt like I always knew her even though there was quite an age difference.
She was a night owl like myself. I would always see her kitchen light on late. Just a small strip of grass between the driveways separated the properties. She was my favorite neighbor from anywhere I had lived. I missed her when she moved to her new residence. The neighborhood just wasn't the same without her.
May she rest in peace, at least she is not suffering.
