Mr. Murray was a very sweet and friendly man. He was always outside when would go to visit my Mother Betty in Apt #114. I know how he enjoyed being outside. He will be greatly missed by myself and my husband Anthony who enjoyed chatting with him outside on their smoke breaks talking about the trucking business. Rest in Peace Mr. Murray! Prayers to his family friend and loved onesπŸ™πŸ™πŸ™
