Dear Charlotte and family,
Will always remember Ed’s quiet, helpful presence. Somehow he always knew what was needed and completed the need. 9:15 mass at St. John’s will not be the same. Rest in the joy of God’s Love........Peace Deacon Ron and Carol Kerr

My sister Charlotte called one evening and told me that a fellow who had a Travel Agency where she delivered mail had asked her if she would go to a dance with him. I asked her if she said "yes". She said she had not but was thinking about it. I told her to get hold of him (Ed Murray) and let him know right away that you will go! She did and thus began the story we all know as a beautiful love story of Charlotte and Ed. He was a wonderful man and loved my sister dearly. Not only did I have a new brother-in-law but he was also a railroad photographer just as I am. We always swapped stories and enjoyed talking about that pastime. He will be so missed by so many of us. I am attaching one of Ed's photos that he took in Pennsauken a couple of years back...……… is one of my favorites. I am so glad he was a part of our family life.
