John, Bev, Kathy and Families,
We can't remember when Murray and Lorraine weren't apart of our family of friends. Murray clowned with my dad and the gang long before Paul joined. Murray was wonderful to us. He came and helped with our new roof, sponsored Paul into the Shrine, and supported our son, Kyle when he became Master Counsellor of his DeMolay Chapter and loved to tease Jessica. Whether it was visits to Mum and Dad's cottage, functions at the club or clowning at an event, we always had fun! "A real friend is family without the birth certificate" The Carmichael's and Cormier's will miss him deeply and remember him fondly.
Harold(Joe-Flash), Bev, Paul(Haystack), Tina, Kyle, Jessica, Ryan & Tracey Peake and boys.
I am so sorry for your loss. We chatted nearly every day and he was always proud to tell me stories of his "kids" and his activities with the Shrine Club. Even though we never met face to face we kept each other company and I really miss him and his humour. I keep thinking he is going to text some funny thing to me but I know in my heart he is better off now with no pain. My Sympathies to you ALL.
