"Uncle Frank was one of the greatest, loving & God fearing men that I had the privilege of knowing. Him & Aunt Linda were always super role models that will be missed here on earth. However, I know beyond a shadow of doubt that I too will join them one day in Heaven along with all of the other family members that have passed. But until then, I imagine the Murray clan is having a good ole fashion throw down in Heaven right now. Rest in Peace Uncle Frank, Love, Judy Murray Carden"
"I know my Aunt Linda is rejoicing at this moment with my Uncle Frank. No more pain or sorrow with our Lord and Savior. They were so much in love with each other, a wonderful example for any couple. I don't recall Uncle Frank ever calling my Aunt Linda "Linda", instead it was always a term of endearment like "Sweetie-Pie". I will forever remember them with a smile and a warm feeling in my heart. I love you and will miss you Uncle Frank and Aunt Linda."
"You will be missed greatly! You are with the love of your life now along with your other brother and sisters. We will cherish the memories. Save a place for me!"
"Heaven is a brighter place today now that Mama has Daddy back with her in Heaven, Mama told him she would be waiting at the gate for him, I believe this to be true knowing how my mother loved him. Daddy, Thank You for all you shared with me in this life and for the times you picked me up off the ground gave me a hug and help me start all over again, Thank You for the time you took to share your knowledge with my wife Stacey and myself, Stacey felt that you was a knowledgeable man.. Daddy I will always hold on to the memoirs of you in my heart, Stacey and I Love You and will Miss You very much.. Thank You for showing how to get to Heaven also, will see you there some day in Heaven... We Love You...."
