Eleanor and I send our condolences to all family. We had the privilege of going to the Special Olympics in Calgary as support volunteers for Sheilagh and the rest of the small NL team who participated for the very first time our Province was ever represented.

Our condolences to the Murray family.. i remember Sheliagh as a fabulous and witty young girl at the Vera Perlin and Pine Grove Schools in the 1970’s . One year, her mother asked me if Sheliagh could come to my house for lunches on school days, and so my husband and I got to know her witty sense of humour and vivid imagination first hand. She was a wonderful fun girl. We know that she had great success in the Special Olympics and can only imagine the stories she had to tell.. Always remembered, Sheliagh .

Mike, Elsie, Brian and family. So sorry to hear of Sheliah’s passing. Thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this difficult time..
