With a heavy heart i would like to send my condolences out to all of Murray family. I have got to know Murray better over the last few years .He could come off a little rough around the edges on a first time impression but as you got to know him you realized he was a very caring man. Almost everyday you could set your watch to Murray going by for his daily drive to the mail he would all ways give a toot on his horn and waving with that big smile across his face. R.I.P Murray you are home at last.
