Murray's sly, yet welcoming smile and his soft chuckle will always be a fond memory for us.  As Culbert's "from away" we mostly just met with Murray and his family at reunions, however the stories we heard of his generation somehow made us feel closer.

Our sincere condolences to Mary and the Culbert family.

Rick & Heather Culbert

It has been a few years since I have seen Murray, but he always had a warm greeting,  a big smile, and a great sense of humor. He was aslo sincerely loved by his neighbour's, friends, and community, one can't have a greater legacy than that.

My heartfelt condolences to your family.
