    Dear Murray Family:   Please accept my heartfelt sympathy for your loss.  The death of a loved one is one of the most devastating things that any of us can experience. At times the loss seems unbearable.  Please know that there are those who care and more importantly, Psalms 35:18 tells us that "God is near to those that are broken in heart."  He is the God of all comfort.  My thoughts and prayers are with you.

    ​My sincere sympathy to the Murray family, Terry\'s friends and, especially, Mrs. Lois Murray.  You never forget the kids you grow up with.  Terry will forever be a part of my childhood memories.  Faith teaches us he continues to live on in spirit with so many others who we\'ve lost.  Until we rejoin them, may God give us strength.

    Our sympathies to the Murray family.  We spent some good years with Terry skydiving and doing other crazy stuff.  Wish we could have seen him one more time before his passing.  R.I.P. Brother Man!

    Mrs. Murray, Sue. I was sad to hear of Terry's passing. I have good memories when he worked at the gas station at 79th & Western. After work he would join me at the bar down the street. That seems like a lifetime ago.

    As you know, Mrs. Murray I visit and talk with Sue all the time, I talked to her the other day as I was planning on coming to the wake, but was unable due to work. Again, deep sympathy to you, Mrs. Murray.

    As a caregiver involved in Terry\\\'s diagnosis He taught me so much. He was an inspiration to me , so brave, kept on top of a million appointments , papers, tests, tests results and all of his M D\\\'s. For the last 2 years he fought so very hard and never gave up. I never saw him but loved his monkey pictures and he loved sharing his jumping experiences with me. Every week over the last year and half he would email me with questions. I always have him positive thoughts . He told me he believed that helped him go on. He always spoke of his sisters and mom although I never knew who was who! Over the last month he was very tired and felt he was not living the life as he once knew. And yet he still remained positive. He was one of the bravest people I have ever met. Terry I am so sorry I could not say goodbye. You are in my prayers and thoughts. I looked forward to your weekly updates and questions. I will miss that.....prayers to your family . I know you are out of your misery now and I feel honored I was given the opportunity to help you fight this battle. God Bless You. Your gazillion friends And family will miss you terribly.       D

    I am in shock and disbelief! Terry and I have been friends since 1990 when I made my first skydive with him. Have been great friends since and talk from month to month. I've been trying to check in with him for weeks and started to get worried; never expecting that tough 'ol son of a gun to be anywhere but on the other end of the line still fighting like only he could. Our last conversation was July 6th and I can't believe he passed 11 days later. I am just finding this news online today and am heartbroken. He was a wonderful man and dear friend. I am so sorry I didn't get to say goodbye. I LOVE YOU BUDDY!
