Murray is the son of Michelle Mallard of Brewton.

The 15-year-old ninth grader enjoyed drawing cartoons and watching sports, especially his favorite teams the Florida Gators and Golden State Warriors. Mallard said her son always kept a smile on his face.

“He was your typical average kid who just loved life,” Mallard said. “He never showed how sick he was. He was a loving, caring child.

“Everybody loved him. He was an angel here and now he’s an angel up in heaven. I just want to say to him that ‘Momma and your brothers will always love you’.”
