I have never have the privilege of meeting James. However, I have had the privilege of working with his daughter, Marie for many years at Procter & Gamble. All I can say is that if James was anything like his daughter then he must have been one very special person. I am sending prayers for James and all of his friends and family that they may find peace in the knowledge that he is now in the most glorious place imaginable.

With my deepest sympathy, I am lighting a candle for you, James Murray, I love you! May your family carry on without you in flesh but imitating your sweet spirit, that who was one, in the closest image of God! I did not get to spend alot of time with you, but enjoyed every minute that we spent talking about fishing. To the family; May God's love enfold you and fill you with thoughts of comfort. Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. John 14:27
