The family wishes to thank the doctors and nurses at the palliative care unit, Saanich Peninsula Hospital, especially Dr. Terri Trottershaw and nurses Amy & Kelly for the wonderful care they gave Murray. Following his wishes he was cremated privately in Victoria and will be resting with us in Ontario. "When I come to the end of the road, and the sun has set for me, I want no tears or gloom filled room... Why cry for a soul set free? Miss me a little but not too long, and not with your head bowed low and remember the love we always shared, miss, but let me go!"
