There have been two great men of faith that have influenced my life beyond words. As children, 33 yrs ago, Murray (Dad)came into our lives and provided a gentleness and love my sister, my two brothers and I had never known. A steady hand and a safe haven for us and our mother. It's never about who we knew, what we did , but it's all about how we lived. Dad has joined my beloved Rich in heaven. They both fought the good fight, finished the race, and kept the faith. We thank God for his blessings.

Amy and John, (grandchildren MaKayla, Kaleb and Kolby and Camo)

We are so sorry for your loss.  Thank you so much for inviting Chandler to go visit Murray on his birthday.  She came home and said that he was so funny. He was telling her he got into some cookies and to not let anyone know. : ) In the next coming months of your grieving, may you lean on God, cherish all the memories of him and know what a Blessing it was to have him for so long. Blessings, Bob, Stacey, Chandler and Graham Fields
