    Tommy Kelsey telephone me this morning to inform me that Murray Schryver had passed away at 81. I knew that Murray had Parkensons and that he was living at the home in Watertown. So sorry to hear that news. Murray was a life long friend, even though we went many years in between seeing each other. Every time my son Grant, late wife Linda and I went up there from our home in Frederick, MD, we always made a point of stopping by to see Murray and Nancy in Omar, my old homestead. My deepest condolences to Nancy and family.
