I'm so sorry for your loss. Death is not something that was intended to be experienced by humans. The bible holds out a beautiful promise of a ressurection at John 5:28,29. We can see our loved ones again very soon. I hope this scripture brings you some comfort as it has done for me in the past when I experienced loss. Please visit jw.org for more comforting information on this subject and so much more.

To the Family: May the God of all comfort strengthen the family during this time of deep sorrow. Those who are ‘’sleeping in death God keeps in his memory because they are precious in his eyes. My sincerest condolences. Psalms 116:15

So sorry for the loss of your loved one. I didn't know him but it appears he had a long and productive life. God intended everlasting life for all mankind (John3:16). He has not changed his mind that's why He sent His son Christ Jesus to make it possible.

Willie, Loganville,

I’m so sorry about your loss. When someone has been a part of such a great number of lives for so many years, it is hard to see them go. My condolences go out to the family. Draw courage and comfort from knowing that God has promised that "death will be brought to nothing"(1 Cor 15:26).

KC, Loganville , GA

In the Bible book of "Ecclesiastes 9:5,10" share with us what happens to our love ones at death when it reads "For the living know that they will die, but the dead know nothing at all, nor do they have any more rewards, because all memory of them is forgotten. whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might, because there is no work nor planning nor wisdom nor knowledge in the Grave, where you are going." May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief.

My condolences goes out to the family. May you all find comfort in the scripture at Acts 24:15.

Rachel, Dallas, Georgia

James Edgar Murrin, “Jim”, as he was known to his friends, died peacefully on November 30 at age 95. He retired in 1980 as Director of East-West Trade Development with the Commerce Department. His home was in Arlington.

Jim graduated from the School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University in 1949 and worked with American Express in New York and Paris before joining Commerce in 1951. During his nearly three decades at Commerce, Jim's responsibilities grew steadily and ranged widely from export control to intelligence activities to trade promotion. He travelled extensively to the Far East, Middle East, and, especially, in his later years at Commerce, to Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union. He received awards and commendations for his many services.

James Edgar Murrin was born in Savannah, Georgia in 1923. As a small child he met Col. Charles A. Lindbergh at a local airport that also afforded kite flying space. He told Col. Lindbergh that he hoped to fly with him someday. During World War II Jim served with the Army Air Force as a flight instructor and fighter pilot in the Pacific flying from the Marianas and Iwo Jima. The latter missions against the Japanese home islands were among the war's longest fighter missions. The service was too late, however, to support a chance to fly with Col. Lindbergh. Jim learned of the war's end from a passing B-29 after taking part in his group's final mission against the island of Shikoku on VJ Day, August 15, 1945.

After leaving government, Jim was active in Commerce retirement groups. Literary magazines published his short stories. Jim was a gentleman in the best sense of that old-fashioned word. His interests were wide ranging, his intelligence keen, his sense of humor wry. His friends were many. He will be missed.

His wife, Virginia Dillon Murrin, died in 2013. His survivors include a niece and three nephews in Savannah.

Graveside Service will be 11:00 a.m., Friday, December 14, 2018 at the Catholic Cemetery.
