Condolence & Memory Journal

I was just listening to James Taylor's greatest hits and it reminded me of my days working as the office manager for Dr. Muehleman 15 years ago while I was a graduate student at MSU. He was always very kind to me and I really enjoyed working for him. I remember he would take patient notes on the back of old papers from his teaching years. And he would ALWAYS listen to one of two things: NPR or James Taylor's greatest hits. I would always hope for the latter haha. I'm sorry to hear of his passing, my condolences (albeit late) go out to the family.

Tom & I are so very sorry for your loss of Tom. Your Tom called my Tom the day before he passed away for my Tom's birthday & they talked a good half hour laughing & remembering good times together. Although I only met you both the one time I could tell what a special man he was. Our thoughts & prayers are with you in the days ahead.

I knew Tom in high school, and he was everyone's friend, had a great attitude and sense of humor. I always thought he'd be the next Arnold Palmer. My condolences to his family.

Dear BeBee, You have my love and sympathy. You and your family have been so wonderful and close to Lela and her family. Lela never knew her grandfather on her Dad's side and she lost hers on her mother's side four years ago. Dr. Muehleman certainly was a fine grandfather to Lela. We "Thank Him" and all of you for your love and generosity. May God give all of you and your families added strength and peace during this difficult time. Love, Granny Jean Rascoe
