It has been quite an education for me.”

“I believe it’s a tragic dog that may’t learn anymore,” Murray said of learning from his mistakes. “That is a extremely sad puppy that may’t learn anymore. I don’t need to be that sad dog and I don’t have any intention of it.”

“What would make me the happiest could be to place my boots on and for each of us to return into work and give you the chance to trust one another and work on the work that we have each spent numerous time developing the skill of,” Murray said.
