My condolences to the Fake family. Mrs. Fake was a great lady. I enjoyed many UMW meetings at the United Methodist Church of Lansingburgh with her. She always gave me an update on her nieces and nephew (who I went to Troy schools with). Just a sweet lady. God bless.

Muriel was one of the sweetest and kindest ladies I have ever known. She made my days working with the folks at Schuyler Ridge more rewarding every day. I'll always remember how she loved Bingo, animals and her iced coffee just to name a few. It has been my pleasure to be able to care for such a dear, sweet lady. My condolences to all of the family.Deb Dooris
