Marilyn, Kevin, Amy Heather Jason, Emma, Owen, Dylan, Peyton, Tanner, Nadine and Florence,
As we told you today at the funeral, Linda and I are so sorry for your loss. Our thoughts are with you. Murray was a good friend for many years and we will miss him. You all will remember him because of all the good memories you have of Murray. I will miss his Friday e-mails of whose turn to pick our Saturday lunch, which we had been doing for many many many years.

To Marilyn and the Lenson Family,

I’m stunned by this news. I’m so very sorry for your loss.
Murray was my closest friend and classmate while attending Law School. Marylyn I’m sure you remember that Murray and I spent many hours together in your apartment reviewing class notes and studying for exams, mixed during our study breaks with a little humor from you and Murray. He would to perfection imitate the mannerisms of some of our professors and fellow classmates. He could not study without a bowl of M&M’s next to him.
Our bond continued after Law
School when we visited each other’s homes. This bond continued to the next generation when my son Charlie and your son Kevin applied and were accepted to the same Law School, shared an apartment together and remain good friends.
In loving memory of a wonderful person.
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.

To Marilyn, I coached first base and Murray was the manager of the little league team in Beachwood. We had a great time. Always looked forward to those games.
