I was so saddened to hear of Muriel's passing on October 5th. It has been a while since we saw her in our offices on campus but she was always active and very engaged in her studies when she was enrolled in the MALS degree program at Duke. Please accept my sincere condolences. Heaven has surely gained a special angel.
