Heaven is a little sweeter now and hopefully, Murray is pain free and at peace.  He was such a gentle soul to all he met.  Until we meet again----

Remember Murray at the 50 th reunion, visited with him and was glad he was able to attend. Saw him a couple times at the monthly breakfasts. Thanks to Jack Craven for his always checking on Murray and bringing him to the outings. Hope he is now at peace ,sympathy to his family.

At this age it is hard for any of us to lose a classmate.  I did not personally know Murray, but may all of the classmates we have lost be happy and at peace.  I hope to see them all again in Heaven where we can continue these get togethers. Thank God for heaven or maybe we will meet again in another lifetime. Certainly will be interesting to see how this all comes about. Praise God and all his Glory help!!!

Murray was always such a great guy.  He was a "what you see is what you get" type of person till the end.  I will forever miss him and his friendship.

Murray was born April 17, 1944, in Ocala, FL and died June 8, 2015.

He will be missed by all who knew him…

This was the content of Murray's Memorial Card.

His Memorial Service was held July 19, 2015

He Only Takes the Best

God saw that he was getting tired, a cure was not to be.

So He put His arms around him and whispered,

"Cowboy come home with me"


With tearful eyes, we watched him suffer,

and saw him fade away.

Although we loved him dearly,

we could not make him stay.

A golden heart stopped beating,

Hardworking hands to rest.

God broke our hearts to prove to us

He only takes "The Best"
