Muriel was a very special sister. I will miss her terribly. We did not see each other as often as we wished but I will always cherish the special visits we did have, and the many wonderful tephone conversations.
Cameron and Lorelei, it is a big loss for you both, but please be comforted by your loving memories.
Aunt Theresa and Uncle Bob.
I was lucky enough to have Mrs. Martin as my fourth grade teacher at Lake Shore 26 years ago! She was one of my favorites from the nine years I attended. The math games we played in her class (with pretzels, jelly beans, and fruit runts awarded to members of the winning team) and our spring performance singing ‘Beat Me Daddy, Eight to the Bar’ as the Andrew Sisters and ‘Over There’ especially stand out to me from that school year. It was clear to see Mrs. Martin was passionate about teaching, and I loved my time with her. I remember her speaking often of her children during class. My thought and prayers are with you during this difficult time.
