So sorry for your loss.
I’m so sorry for your family’s loss. I enjoyed every Zoning Board or City meeting that I would see Mr. Musgrove! He was always so kind and pleasant. He would often speak of his family and the biggest smile would cross his face.
Our condolences and prayers go out to Dallas and their entire family. We always enjoyed playing Pinochle with the Musgrove’s and hearing Jim’s stories of the days when he worked at McDonnell Douglas (before Boeing bought them). Rest in Peace.
Sorry to here about Mr. Musgrove’s passing. I first met him when I moved to the ogles subdivision. He was my alderman at that time. My prayers are with the family.
Very sorry to hear of the passing of Alderman Musgrove. He was a remarkably dedicated public official who always maintained the people’s interest foremost in his mind. Please accept condolences and respect from our family to yours.
