To the Murray family,
We grew up together in FT Madison on Ave P. Such a good childhood we had. We lost track of each other in later years. I am so sorry for the loss of life for Cynthia. I wish I could've talked to her as to our childhood and stayed in touch through the years. My deepest sympathy to you all.
