I had the good fortune to get to know Murray a bit, both as a parent, and through my time with the PCO.

I can honestly say that he embodied so many of the characteristics we admire in an educator: he was thoughtful, thorough, intelligent, kind, had a good wit, and always seemed to be level-headed and patient. (As a parent and former teacher, I know how difficult those latter characteristics can be!)

And as a part of the greater ISPP community, I appreciate the love and support the faculty and staff were able to provide him through these past couple of years, which were most certainly very difficult.

I only wish that we could gather as a larger community to celebrate his life and work, but please know that his commitment (and yours) to our children has not gone unnoticed.

Best wishes are with Murray’s wife and family.
