We will miss Murray. I sang with him in the North Buxton choir and the Merlin choir, so I know how much he loved music and being with everybody. Neither Helene or I have been well lately and I want to apologize for not attending Murray's funeral.

Dave W, Jean and family. Very sorry for your loss. Remember the good times and take care of each other. Jeff

Condolences to David and family

It’s hard for tears to fall when you’ve forgotten how to cry. It’s hard to say, “see you later!” When for the last time, you’ve said, “goodbye.” It’s hard but that’s okay, I will see them again one day. Dedicated to grandpa and grandma. Link to original post

So sorry for your lost! Our hearts are with you and your family! God rest him in peace!

So sorry on your loss.
