Grandpa Murchie was quite the character. He always had a smile, loved to get hugs (especially from the women) and enjoyed playing his harmonica. I will always cherish the time we shared together. There is a joy in knowing our kids got to know their great grandpa. He is truly missed, until we meet again. XO💜

Harold is my father-in-law whom I miss so much. He was one of the funniest, kindest and loving man I know and I called him Dad. He will always be in my heart and I will hold onto all the memories I have shared with him. When I think of him I get tears in my eyes but I know he is loving life in God's Holy Land. I will never forget the first time I met you when I spilled 8 glasses of ice cold water down your back when you hugged me at a restaurant I was working at. We had so many laughs about that. When I think of you not only with the tears I get the most awesome smile and a few giggles of how you always corrected my Okie talk. I love you DAD...........Fly high with the angels until we meet again. Your loving daughter-in-law Terry
