My first memory of Murl was when he played for Holiday Market fast pitch baseball team against my hubby's I-5 team. Fast forward to our girls playing Little League together along with many 4-H events, fairs, and followed by several business dealings together. Murl's gentle smile and mild manner will always be with me as a reminder of our acquaintance.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. Murl and Mark could challenge the best ice cream eaters anywhere. Even though we didn’t get together often we certainly appreciated our friendship with Murl and Diane.
