I met Muriel during my visit to Tucson to see my family. My cousin Michelle A. Sigafus worked for Mrs. Shandling and when we went to pick up Michelle I met her. She was a delightful and wonderful lady. She was very proud of her son Gerry of blessed memory. May her name and memory be for a blessing.

I used to work for Muriel at Animal Fair. I was one of her groomers and vet tech.
She loved her Bouviers . I met Garry at the shop once and he looked just like Muriel. He also had a heart of gold just like Muriel. RIP and you are now both together.

I grew up within walking distance of Animal Fair, and going there to see the animals was always a highlight to my day. Muriel always greeted me with kindness and allowed me to interact with the animals in her store. Because of her I have a true love of animals.
Muriel, I am very sorry to hear of your passing... thanks for the memories!

Muriel use to call me her surrogate daughter. Once I dyed my hair red like hers & everyone was calling me little Muriel. I first met her in 1981, when I was stationed in Tucson with the Air Force.
