Dear Joan and family, I just heard that Murray had passed away over a year ago. I read his obituary on the web site. It brought back many happy memories of days in North Bay. It also reminded me that you both were kind enough to make your way to the Hockley resort for our 50th wedding anniversary. Keith and I extend our deepest sympathies to you and your family. Sincerely, Mary Foster
