Murray, My sincere condolences on the loss of your father. I hope you and your family can find peace and strength in knowing how lucky you were to have had such a wonderful man in your life. You were blessed with a great dad, and the real loss would be having never known the love and support he had for all of you! Shalom my friend J.T.
