  • My thoughts and prayers are with the Murray family. Paul was a great guy. While it’s been many years since I last saw Paul, I can say he was fun to be around, loved to laugh and generally have fun. Years ago we used to go fishing a lot and had great times with the gang, especially those times spent at parties at Vinnie’s house. As one of Paul’s friends said upon hearing of his passing, “I’m sure he’ll make God laugh!” RIP, Paul.

  • Warm thoughts a prayers to your family. Like Todd said it’s been so many years since we saw each other and that’s sad. I met you in School where we it off very well I think one of your great gifts was your laughter and seemed to be always happy ( even when we get yelled at from Teachers). We hung out with your dad at the pool even worked together I m sorry I didn’t keep in touch more RIP Paul my longtime friend
