I would think of this as a gift from my father, your Uncle Murray.
Via an email from Marcia, to Nicole A, and vice and versa -

As Nicole A. received from Murray's daughter Marcia on Feb. 20th, 2021 -

As I had sent this to her! And, to the other family members, on 2/20/21. Pictured below -

How often in a lifetime, does one say goodbye.
Never thinking it maybe our last goodbye. For me, there were many goodbyes. The most memorable time was standing up at uncle Murray’s and Aunt Roberta’s wedding, as their flower girl (and I was age nine years old).
Uncle Murray treated me as someone “Special,” Letting me put my feet on his broad shoes, as we danced the night away!
Many years later, myself, my husband also named Bill, and our daughter Nicole, visited Uncle Murray, and Aunt Roberta, in Lexington, Mass. It had been our first experience as a family going to a restaurant and eating lobster all together.
We could never forget the forever winding porch attached to their home, and the ceramic OWLS on the mantal piece.
There are many memories, and unsaid goodbyes. Were it not for Uncle Murray, we would have had to contend with the aftermath of the 1994 CALIFORNIA EARTHQUAKE, without a shoulder to cry on?
He came all the way to visit us in California, offering, much empathy and wisdom. And, as we sat by the pool, in our temporary home away from our actual home, we all soaked up the sun and made new memories! Never thinking that would be the last time, we would see Murray, in person to say goodbye!

I like to believe when, we depart to heaven. That heaven is calorie free. That Murray is dancing with Roberta, and he is watching over each of us in the BIG television set in the sky! That he is smiling! That beautiful smile of his. That his protection of many when he was in the military, still extends to each of us now. Murray touched lives, and made them better, for those of us, who were fortunate to have crossed his path!
I have worked for many years, within the hospice care industry, and I was not sure, learning about my uncle’s “passing” what to say, to his relatives. I saw a pastor on TV recently, and what he said reign true for me: “Words do not always provide comfort”. This COVID illness has been devastating to millions of us! I educate, on the grief process often within my work, and what I have learned is, if each of us, can try to each remember the very best of Murray, and not forgot how he made us each feel, then, he will remembered and remain within our hearts forever! Murray’s smile was infectious, and we each smile using the same language, so, I am going to try to picture his genuinely nice smile, even if I have to smile through tears, and to do that, and take that step looking up to into the blue clouds, AND SMILE in his honor.

A “smile” like no OTHER!

They say age is a number! Reading the obituary for my favorite uncle, Murray, made me smile, to learn, that he had the tenacity to use an I – PHONE, AND TO ALSO USE AN I – PAD, before his own daughters.
Uncle Murray had a passion for technology, and also an ability to make jewelry.
One of my best memories I have of him was his ability, and his desire to just want to listen to me, and to be present and support me.
His wonderful Bostonian accent was soothing to the ear, and walking with him along the beach, I felt eight feet tall, and his good looks, were possibly better than knowing any celebrity or movie star!
He was inquisitive, and always, inquired as to my well-being, and he also wanted to make sure, that both of my parents were “OK” as well. A computer software engineer, he had warmth, and caring, for many of my relatives as well!
He was a sweet man, as my own grandmother Harriet always said. He was appreciated by my grandfather Isadore (Bill), his brother, as well as by his other brother, Carl, for his keen sense of humor.
Murray was a teacher, and also a “giver”. He was a gorgeous soul inside and out. He was giving of his time and was open to learning from others.
His journey from Northeastern University, and to and from Havard, and also through MIT was inspiring. A world traveler, who I hope, I am correct had once visited Saudi Aruba on business matters, Murray, was an accepting individual. Accepting of other cultures, and of different religions, and he raised three kind and caring daughters: Jeanne, and Debbie, and Marcia.
He was financially savvy, and his smile, often lighted up any room, he walked within. One of the last emails, I received from him, he spoke about that his favorite dessert was black forest.
cake with cherries on top. As a prize winner baker, myself that made me smile!
