Helen, Girls and Family, I apologize for this late entry. I was gone for a week and just getting back to getting things caught up. Our deepest sympathy to all of you at the difficult time. Don was a man who I never seen anything but a smile that crossed his face where ever a person met him. A soft spoken man who was blessed with such a beautiful family. God bless his memory and God bless all of you! Don & Michelle Murray
