I was 18 and out of the house when my mom (Rose) and Murray married. I knew him mostly through my mom. Murray the good dancer, (I saw this to be true). My mom worked hard and it was good to see her have fun. Murray the bowler, the golfer, casino and bingo guy. He had many friends and genuinely loved to be around people . I have no doubt I like corny jokes to this day because of Murray. I respected his years of consistent involvement as an usher at St James church. He was always helping someone, I attributed it to his faith. I admired his love of history and music and how he kept things simple. I liked how he would let my mom win arguments even when he knew she was wrong. I will always remember his boyish charm, bright eyes and smile. But mostly his respect and adoration for my mom. (through marriage and divorce) They knew how to laugh and enjoy life together and accepted the quieter times that came with aging gracefully.
Murray will always be a kind and gentle soul whom will live forever in my heart. Thank you heavenly father for Murray may he rest in peace. Lois
