To the family of my more than 60 year friend, I offer my deepest condolences. Having known Murray for most of my 77 year life, I share some of your pain, but I also offer a reminder of how much he was able to overcome in life before being called Home.
Hold onto the memories!

Mr.Delong was a man of great respect for eveyone while working as a baliff in Crown Point. I remember him while working during jury duty. He would be polite to the people brought in and kept that smile on his face if you let him. He made my time during jury duty pleasant and would joke with us. I dont belive there will ever be another person their with his personality. To his family cherish the time you had with him and know he has his crown that God promised.
