Dear Norma and family,

I was very sorry to read of Murray’s death this morning. Murray was a very fine man with great intelligence, sensitivity and a wonderful dry and wry humor. He had beautiful blue eyes. He was an excellent bridge player which was where I first met him when he played at Essex Bridge Club in Livingston. Years ago, after he moved to Dallas, there were some rare occasions when I would play with him online. I know he was a loving brother - having met his sister when he played with her at Essex.
Norma, he was immensely proud of you and your many accomplishments and those of his family too.
May you find comfort in the many memories you have of shared times with him as you reflect and reminisce upon them. I know Murray’s memory will always be for a blessing.

Sincerely, Peppi Glass
