7 Comments on “Ruel C Murks”

  1. Loved taking care of this sweet man. Mrs Murks you showed a devotion, caring for Mr Murks that was one of a kind. Will miss seeing you and the hugs.

  2. My condolence to the Murks family. Losing a love one in death is never easy. My Jehovah (Psalm 83:18) the God of comfort help you though this difficult time. (2 Corinthians 1:3,4)

  3. Enjoyed getting to take care of Mr. Murks and knowing Mrs. Murks . Such sweet people. You all will be missed. Praying for all. Mrs Murks come visit and keep in touch..
