Dear Susan and Frank, I was so sad to hear about your Mom’s passing. I hadn’t seen her for a few years but we did try to stay in touch by phone about family news and life in general. There were memories that your mom had and stories that she told that are particularly precious to me. She is one of the very few people who knew my dad, her uncle Dale, as a young man. She knew him before the war and was there when he was mustered out of the Army Air Corps. She was about 12 years old. Her mom took her out of school so they could be there for him and she was able to look over the crowd and pick him out of a whole mass of men in uniform. Both Mom and Dad loved Muriel and later Bob and you children. They knew she loved them too. My love and best wishes to you both and to Larry, too. Karen Mosher

Dear family.... Muriel was a wonderful friend and cousin. We enjoyed our three years together when we were at Drew, as well as the several times we were able to visit. Bob and Muriel made our lives fuller because of their love and hospitality. Janet and Glenn Kohlhepp

Dear Walter's Family My Wife and were saddened to read of Mrs. Walter's Passing, your Mom was a cherished member of our community as a School Teacher, Member of the Hackettstown Fire Department Auxiliary and Helping your father at RM Appliances, and will be missed. Mrs. Walter was one of my favorite Substitute Teachers and when she filled in it was no day of babysitting as she really taught, we learned and was great. Though my words can bring little comfort in this time of mourning, please know we will have you all before our FATHER in Heaven asking the comfort through Christ our LORD only HE can provide. GOD Bless you Paul & Robin Wallace
