I visit catlett quite often and came across the railroad track where you lost your life. Feeling so sad that you died so young I got to wonderin who you were as a person. Reading all of the remembrances from your friends and family you were a special human being and loved by so many. I am a stranger to you but I often think of you and still visit those railroad tracks to this day. Thank you for your service Sgt. Murray. A big thanx to you all for letting me get to know the man I visit at the tracks in catlett from your story's. Rest easy sir I salute you!
