Father Greg Schaut
Please accept my deepest sympathy at tbe loss of Muriel. Muriel was one of my First Friday Communion calls, when I was a priest at St Marys in Chardon. I and others called her the “raccoon lady” because she often fef them outside her back patio door on a regular basis. I loved spending time with her and praying with her. Muriel is being remembered in all my weekend Masses, and all of you are in my daily prayers. God’s peace and comfort be with you all.
We know this must be a very difficult and demanding time for your family. May the God of all comfort help to ease the pain of your grief. Thinking of you all.
