    Strickland Family

    So sorry to hear of Murray’s passing. I had the pleasure of meeting Murray (a fellow Newfoundlander) when I worked at the Pickering Building here in Ottawa back in the 1980’s. He was such a pleasant person.

    Please accept my sincere condolences

  11. Dear Donna
    I can’t help thinking of you today as you face your farewell to your dear Murray. I will greatly miss Murray’s smile and cute quips. He always made me feel like I was his good friend and I know that many of us at the pool feel the same way. I remember how lovely he was with Arran when you all came to my studio last year. Murray was a real softie. His love lives on in the most beautiful places you can imagine.

    With the deepest sympathy to you and your family,
    Jane

  12. From a fellow Newfoundlander, Bay Roberts, I had the pleasure of knowing Murray during our short G8 duties. I found Murray to be a gentle soul who never had a negative comment about anyone. I considered him a friend and a proud Newfoundlander. I am sorry for your loss.
