Merybehn Peller, one of Murshid’s first mureeds and an artist and poet, died Thursday February 25, 2010 at Petaluma Valley Hospital. She had been very ill for about 3 weeks.
She died surrounded by numerous pictures of Murshid dancing and smiling. Fatima had brought full size posters of Murshid and Pir Vilayat to brighten the hospital room walls, and she was so grateful. One of Fatima’s posters of the Garden of Inayat was also on the wall at her bedside.
