A Milton girl who attends Buckingham Browne & Nichols School died in a boating accident while on vacation with her family in Aruba. Cassidy Murray, who attended seventh grade at Milton’s Pierce Middle School last year, died on Wednesday.
It is with broken hearts that we share the news of the tragic passing of Cassidy’s beautiful spirit, genuinely kind heart, bright mind, and joyful zest for life will be profoundly missed by all who knew and loved her.
Her school remembered her as a friend to all with a bright smile. Cassidy had a special gift for uniting classmates with her smile, laugh and genuine kindness.
Her decision to transfer from Pierce to Buckingham Browne & Nichols was based on the recommendation of her brother, who is a 10th-grade student at the school.
Cassidy played hockey and competed in gymnastics, and was proud of her Irish heritage, which was displayed beautifully with a Claddagh-ring mug and Celtic-cross plate that she made in ceramics class.
There are no words to describe the tragic loss of this vibrant young girl who had so much to offer and her whole life ahead of her. The cause of death has yet to be established.
