    Please accept the condolences and support of Verneal and I in this Hard time, if there is anything we can do please let us know.

    I will always think fondly of Murray, he was always willing to help out a newbie acreage owner with advice or the loan of some piece of esoteric acreage gear or advice on wine making. I will miss our conversations when he stopped by after mowing Wayne’s lawn or was just out cruising the old neighborhood.

    Eric + Verneal

    Pleaase accept my condolences and support in this difficult time. I am so pleased that we met this last summer. It was a pleasure to talk of passed years in Calgary.
    Murray and I remembered living as neighbors, attending school together, field days, ball games and picnics (he was my first date)
