To the Smith family…
Sorry to hear of Murray’s passing. He had a good life & will certainly be missed by family & friends alike. I always enjoyed my visits with him & your mum when I would go to Caledonia & always enjoyed their visits when they came to Ottawa…your dad always had a chuckle when we would ‘walk him around the property line’ (it was our inside joke). The next generation now takes over in your family…amazing how fast the time goes by.

Thinking of you all.

Marilyn (Cobb) & Chuck (McGinty)
