    Dearest Joe and Family, My deepest sympathy goes out to you all. I am at a loss for words and only know how strong all of your love is for each other. I can not put into words the admiration that is so evident with all of you and towards all of you. Please remember the legacy that Kelli left with you. She is watching and protecting you all. The love and respect she gained through her short time with everyone is undeniably endless. I saw that there were no such people as in-laws in your family…everyone was a brother, sister and friend. My thoughts and prayers go out to all.

    Love, Denise Porter Noel

    Kelli was one of those special people that come through our lives, and we never forget them. She was always smiling with a good nature. A very loving person. The last time I saw Kelli she was 18 yrs. old and I was so impressed with her I tried to fix her up with my son. She will be truly missed and loved forever. My prayers are for her family. I look forward to seeing her again.

    Joe, Murrary Children, and family.
    I know you guys from many years ago when I worked at Lowell Five Cent savings in wilmington. Both Agati and Murrary families are wonderful people and my heart goes out to you all. I am so sorry to hear of Kellie’s passing and just saw her recently at Market Basket and we talked for a bit and it was good to catch up with her after all those years. Joe always remember how much Kellie loves you and the kids and keep those memories in your heart and mind everyday. God bless you all. Sincerely, Diane (Ventrillo) Bosia

  19. Krysta O'Neill says:

    I am forever thankful for your smile. That smile that I see in every picture of you and every memory in my mind will be the image that keeps me going. You were my inspiration, friend, sister and mentor. I am forever grateful to my brother for bringing you and your family into our family (even at the age that you started dating :) ). I remember often wondering how you could raise 5 kids as effortlessly as it appeared while I wondered how to raise just one. I love you and your family with all my heart and am grateful for the time we had together with you. Please guide us and help us make sense of this. All my love and heart xoxo

  20. Wendy Tassone says:

    To the family of Kelli Murray,
    I only knew Kelli breifly, but my daughter goes to preschool with the twins. The last time I saw her was at my daughter’s birthday party. I remember talking with her many times through out the school year and she was always doing something for her children. She was a very sweet lady.
    I am so sad for your loss. I know she is protecting all of you and our hearts are with you.
