    Mr. Murray was such a wonderful man. I am good friends with his sons and when we were teens he took us on a skiing trip. I will never forget how much fun we all had together that weekend. Over the years I would talk to him from time to time and I always enjoyed our conversations. There was no doubt that he loved God and his family. He and his wife raised 2 of the finest men I know and I know he was extremely proud of them.

    Larry was a great guy. We all enjoyed his laughs. He really loved his wife and children, and seemed to have found a new calling on the road doing insurance work. He will be dearly missed by all of our staff at our office! God bless him on this next journey.

    Margie, Kenneth, Steven and family. I was so sorry to hear about Larry. Stephanie told me about it this morning. He was a wonderful man. Wish we could have been able to keep in contact after our children were grown. I did think about all of you. I will be praying for you during this difficult time. I had to go thru the same thing in 2015 when I loss Shuford. It is hard and only our precious Savior can take us thru this. My love and prayers. Nancy Cox
