We are sorry to hear that Murry died but want to send our condolences to the family. He was our pastor at Wesley Memorial Methodist from 1989-95. Sandy and I enjoyed having Murry and Rose as part of our congregation and church family. Murry was always active and interested in the youth group members and their activities. He was a good listener and sincerely cared about our concerns. He certainly loved the Lord and shared his faith in many ways with us. I'm sure the family has wonderful memories to provide some comfort during this time.

I will always remember your dad on the night you were made a Master Mason. He was so proud of you. May he rest in eternal peace, and may your great memories carry you through this difficult time.
