So sorry for the loss of one of the strongest most generous people I have ever met. I loved working with Murdock. She always kept you upbeat if you were having a bad day. I know Carol will be extremely missed. I regret that I am unable to attend her memorial. Please know that my heart & prayers go out to the family.
When I first started working with Murdock she scared me, i was 14. As the years flew by I loved working with her, after a crazy work day I would sit for an hour or longer after we had clocked out just to hear her stories. I loved her intelligence and wit. She was one of the smartest women I have ever met. Some of my favorite memories of her were when we would get slammed first thing in the morning and she would swing that door open from the back room and yell out into rhe restaurant "it's going to be a prozac morning!!!" And when her customers would stand at the register waiting to talk to Nancy because they didn't know whether she was joking with them or insulting them. I admired her because she spoke her mind and she worked so hard and loved her family. She was a good woman to know and I'm thankful for being able to have met and worked with her.
I will always remember you Carol & Cherish our Memories we had together, & will always love you even tho we hardly got together, but I asked the girls about you when they came down . RIP Carol! To the girls...i love you all
