    So sorry for your families' loss,he was a great man. I will never forget my daddy telling me when he first met Murray over seventy years ago. Daddy always said he wanted to ride as good of horses and have as good of hounds as Murray had.

    I am sorry for your loss. Condolences to the family. Mr Jennings was, indeed, a Spring Creek Crawdad. He was vitally interested in the lives of the families of the Precinct. Thank you, Sir, for your service for the country and community.
