Cousin Emily please accept my condolences to you and your family! You know we loved Murray! My fondest memory is when you, Murray and me went to the 1970 Milton High School Class Reunion. We had fun just by ourselves laughing at and I kept dancing regardless of the 1970's music and we had a blast. We shared other memories because Murray would always keep us laughing.....I know you will miss him tremendously and I will too! God rest his beautiful soul. He was one of a kind!!!!
Love You Classmate,
Joyce King Bolds

My heart felt condolences to the Hamilton family. Murray was a very special man with the ability to open up his heart to all that he met. I appreciate Murray spending his time and musical talents with me as a young adult even though I was absolute proof that not everyone is meant to play a bass guitar, but Murray always had the kind demeanor and patience to keep me encouraged. The world has lost one of its best as Heaven receives another Angel. Rest in Peace Murray and thank you for touching my life.

I am saddened by the loss of Murray. Every time we saw each other he was jovial and happy. I know Murray made a powerful impact on his family, friends and community at large. His presence will be missed but his spirit will live on. May God continue to bless and keep you during this time. We know he is able.

With Love,
