Jean, Robert and Families, Your Mom was such a sweet heart. When I lived on the farm she was always checking in on me making sure I was okay. We had a little secret that I will tell you now. She always wanted to be show her how to play blackjack. I dealt blackjack when I was living on the farm and she said she always wanted to know how. I am sorry now we never got that chance. I bet there are some card sharks in Heaven that can teach her now. May you all share stories and memories that warm your hearts and bring comfort. Our deepest sympathy, Don & Michelle Murray
