Bon voyage, Muriel

Today I attended a memorial service for a lovely lady who passed away at the age of almost 98 years. She was a great philanthropist who enriched many lives. I spent a little time online looking for a photo of her to post, but one of the interesting things was that when I googled her image, what I got was pictures of all the people and programs that have benefited from her generosity, but very few pictures of herself.

I guess that's a statement in itself, about what's important to her.

My friend Roger Bourland has posted a nice tribute to her. Go read it.

Muriel liked cookies.

Muriel sounds like she was an amazing woman. I like it that you know she liked cookies.
