    Very sorry to hear of Muriel,s passing. When we tried visiting the last few times, we saw the note on her door saying family only to visit. We suspected that her health was failing. My mother, Viney Reeves , was a longtime friend of Muriel,s. They stayed in touch even though they lived far apart. Muriel will be missed.

  2. Condolences to the family. My mother, Lavina (Viney) Reeves passed away herself two years ago on Oct. 29th. She so enjoyed the calls from Muriel
    and the two of them would have a lengthy conversation, catching up on each other’s news. And, every time mother went to Calgary to visit my sister Gail and her family, she and Muriel would make arrangements to re-connect.
    I feel they will be doing this again, in their final resting place. This brings me comfort and I hope it will Muriel’s family as well.
