We are so very sorry to hear of your loss and our sincere sympathy to the entire family and friends as Murchie was a wonderful man. I very much enjoyed talking to him and watching him repair my TV over the years and seeing him at the pharmacy and even in at my store for batteries and stationery items as we shared a laugh or two as I understood his humor. (Terry, I remember my first job at GG's and working with you all those years ago and the fun times we had there!)
May your fond memories fill your minds and hearts always.
