Karen, cousins, all near family & friends ~ Sorry to learn of my second cousin's passing. I did not know him, but I am reminded here... we all did. His beautiful work is forever a part of our collective childhood consciousness. THANK you dear cousin! His Mother Lucy and my father Maddrey 1910-1995 were born on Granduncle Tom's and my grandfather Bob's neighboring farms in Hurdle Mills 110 years ago. Rimmer Reunion is each July there, at Berrys Grove Baptist. Love to have you join us. We'll remember Maury this July 27. God bless you all. Friend me on facebook. We are a big old family, growing closer.

My sincere sympathy to the family and friends of Maury. It can be very difficult and distressing to cope with the loss of a loved one. It has helped myself and others knowing that our dear loved ones now rest in the loving memory of our Grand Creator, Jehovah.( Psalms 83:18-God's name). May you find comfort to know that Jehovah hates death.( 1 Cor. 15:26). And promises to eliminate death forever and bring those sleeping in death back to life on a cleansed earth. ( John 17:3; Isaiah 25:7,8. Acts 24:15; Rev. 21:4,5; Psalms 37:10,11,29). I hope these few scriptures along with your own good and loving memories of Maury help to bring comfort, peace and a hope.

Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Mr. Laws was as musically empathetic to Rankin/Bass as Elfman to Burton or Badlamenti to Lynch. May his legacy live on, at Christmas and elsewhere.

His music and stories were a part of our son’s childhood and my grandkids.

I was happy to have met him many years ago when stopped to see his sister at work.
I worked with Anne Hall for many years.

So sorry for everyone and the world.

Prayers to everyone
