Dear Phil and Kate. Sophie, Prue, Alistair, Fiona and all your families.
I have many fond memories of Muriel. She was a delight in every way. It was a privilege to have known her on many levels, over the years.
I feel honoured to have known her, through her life’s journey.
She worked hard, and is deserving of the little pleasures, she was always thankful for, in her latter years. Even the weekly massages.
Will miss your lovely smile, and occasional chat, over a leg massage.
Thank you Muriel.

Rest in Peace Granny Harris
I have nothing but gratitude for the life that Granny lived, and the Granny I was blessed with. When I think of my childhood years with Granny (and Pa), I feel warmth and love. That’s what Granny was to me, whether expressed through a cup of tea and a salada biscuit with kraft cheese, or her watching and chuckling at me on my pony. In every photo with her grandchildren, Granny is smiling or holding our hand. I remember the feel of her soft and knobbly old hands, and I wish I could have given her one more kiss before she left us. But I know she had a long, fulfilling, honest and humble life, and that she went peacefully to meet with Pa. Granny shared her love and kindness with not just us but all of the natural world. She was keenly observant and taught us strong values to appreciate what we have, don’t waste it, and look after each other. Today and every day, I thank God for the blessing who was Granny Harris.
Condolences to Lorraine, her siblings and their families on the passing of their Mother, Granny and Great Granny Muriel. A long life well lived with lots of happy memories.
