Not sure what to say?

To Jane , Angela and family,

Forgive my late tribute, I have been in Australia building my business and did not know of Murrays illness or passing.
Murray was such a gentleman, it was my pleasure to have had Murray as a client.

1968 was the year I first met Murray + Jane Dunn, when I became their Karitane nurse for Angela who had just started at school, Penelope who was 3 years old and didnt like to eat and Sweet little 18month old genevieve. following 18months of caring for the children, Murray invited me to become the karitane nurse shop assistant at his pharmacy at Pakuranga. This kind and gentle man saw something in me I didnt, and he got me a job at Epsom caring for beaten and dumped children. We have been in...

I love you Dad. Words can never express how much you mean to me, but I know that you know.
Not a day will ever pass without me smiling about you and living life by your wonderful example..
You are the best

We were saddened to hear of the passing of Murray or "Mr Dunn" as Simone and I used to call him. We both have very fond memories of Murray growing up and remember him as a kind, warm and thoughtful man. My thoughts are with you Angela, Jane and family. Much love Fiona Ellis (Humphreys) and Simone Taylor (Woods)

Farewell Murray. You were a real gentleman who always offered a friendly conversation.

When I learned that the the girls - and family would be in NZ - i decided to visit NZ- with my 24 year old Tennis coach, Arthur, before we headed to Melbourne. We all first played Canadian doubles (which I think you folks call South African Doubles). Murray beat us soundly - and then, with...

This week we lost one of the good ones...

"Mr Dunn" was a true gentleman and an inspiring, caring and generous leader. I always remember with great fondness my time working on his Elizabeth Arden counter in Manukau. His Christmas speeches were legendary - and he is still the only person I know who could thank 30 staff members individually, managing to say something different and insightful about each one's contribution...!

Genuinely loved by his team, and...

Farewell Murray. I always enjoyed our chats.
