  • Alice was always so kind to me and to my family! She often remembered my sons birthday with a special Halloween card, and to this day I treasure a beautiful Clivia plant she gave me from a division of one of her robust plants. In her honor it will get repotted this spring and when it blooms I will forever think of Alice. Mrs. Murray’s door was always open and she liked to discuss current events; she was well informed about the political happenings of the day. I was glad to know her. My deepest condolences to Kathy, David, Paul, Julie, Emily and Ben 💛

  • Sending deep condolences and caring thoughts to the Murray family. May your parents now rest in peace together and live forever in your hearts. Love, Lori and Charlie

  • Dear Kathy – I never had the chance to meet your mom but we did talk about her many times. Please accept my deepest sympathy over her passing. I know and understand the feeling of loss and sadness as I am also going through the same, losing my beloved husband recently. Your mom knows how much you have taken care of her and I’m sure that she appreciated that.

    Sincerely,
    Lorna
