We have loved having June and Carl as friends whom we met at Arkansas State years ago. At homecoming this year we were blessed to get to spend time with them . Carl was trying to take care of Murray. We never thought that he would be leaving us so soon. May the great memories we all have comfort his family and his many friends!
