Dear Murray and Family. My most sincere sympathy on the passing of your father. You've been part of my life since we were little kids (even have our hockey team photo from the paper when we were very young). I still remember you coming in to dad's office just to say hi to him and shoot the breeze. You were there when my dad passed, and my hope is you feel as comforted now, as you truly made me feel then. I so wish I could give you a big hug in person. Love and warm thoughts to your entire family and your fathers many friends. Your lifelong friend, Jack.
