Dear Dave and family. I cannot believe your dad and my mom are on the same SMITH'S page, passing away within days of each other. Unable to attend your dads service due to moms decline and eventual death April 27 brings double sadness all around. I love you Dave. Kate

Dear Nina, Julia, David, Nancy and Family,
You are in our thoughts during this difficult time. We remember fondly the family get togethers and will miss Murray's kindness, thoughtfulness and great sense of humour. Betty or Babe as Murray fondly called her, thought the world of her big, older brother!!
I posted a few pictures of some of the family get togethers that meant so much to him.
Murray you will be missed!
Love George, Murray, Susan & Ron, Brad & Whitney, Everly, Vivian and Jonathan

The end of an era is upon us with the passing of Murray. My heart is heavy as I sit here reminiscing about Murray, Paul, Norman, and Al...the four musketeers. What a time they had! Through thick and thin, through good times and tough times.

Murray's quiet, calm demeanor belied his quick wit and subtle humour. He willingly shared his love of art, sailing and financial know-how.

I reflect now on the good old days and rewind mind-videos I have created over the years. As they play in my head, I am reminded of Murray in his art gallery; in the boat yard; out on the lake; in the bar at BHYC; enjoying meals with the gang in the Coach and Four, at the Rolstons, in the Blythewood back yard and around their dinner table.

Although I have been away from Burlington I cherish that time of my life, and the friends I have there. Nina and Murray are part of that.

Take care Nina. My thoughts are with you as you move through this most difficult time. Lee Fielding

Dear David, We are sorry to hear of the loss of your father. I always remember him as being very kind and gracious when he would stop in to visit Mom on George Street. Our sincere and heart felt sympathies to you and the family.
