  2. R.I.P Murray.
    I will miss our chats and most of all I will always remember how much time you took in teaching me how to skate when you had the original skating ring in Mildura.
    Thank you for always being there for me and listening and never judging me.
    Fly high mate.
    Forever in our hearts and finally pain free.

  6. Sad to see in the paper that Murray has passed.
    He was a kind soul who loved his Mum so dearly and missed her so much since she passed.
    Murray was a valued colleague and friend at Sunraysia Community Health Services for many years.
    He made the best sponge cakes I have ever tasted.
    He loved his bowls and encouraged many to take it up.
    My thoughts are with Murray’s family at this time.

    RIP Murray xxx

  10. RIP my dear old friend Murray Holmes
    May you be pain free now.
    Sorry I didn’t make it up to the hospital to see you when you got back to Mildura. But I’ve been flat out then COVID so I couldn’t visit anyway.
    I will never forget the day you called to let me know you had cancer and you were off to Melbourne. Everything was just so quick bloody cancer sucks big time.
    I will miss you my friend I really will. You are another person I met when I first moved to mildura.
    Fly high mate we will catch up on the other side.
    I will miss ya phone calls and little chat.
