“It is with broken hearts that we announce the tragic passing of our daughter, Cassidy. Cassidy’s beautiful spirit, genuinely kind heart, bright spirit and zest for life will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved her,” reads the family statement.

“We thank everyone for their love and support and ask that you please give us the time and space to grieve together in private during this difficult time. »

Murray attended Buckingham Browne & Nichols School in Cambridge, Massachusetts. School principal Jennifer Price released a letter to the community announcing the girl’s passing.

“Cassidy entered college this year as a 7th grader…She wasted no time creating her own unique brand on the MS campus,” Price wrote.

“Her ever-present smile, contagious laughter and upbeat personality united every group she was a part of. Her classmates gravitated towards her because of her genuine kindness and quiet modesty. Her friends knew from the first week of school that she would be a warm and trusting confidant with a great sense of fun and camaraderie. »

“We all hold the Murray family – Linda, David and Adam – close in our thoughts and hearts,” Price continued.

“At this time, as we all struggle to make sense of this tragic news, we need to support each other, and especially Cassidy and Adam’s classmates and friends, as we navigate the complex process of dealing with our grief. »

Price said the school plans to hold meetings Monday with students and staff as they try to come to terms with the tragedy.

“Each of us, adults and children, who are affected by this extremely sad news will need to grieve and process in our own way,” Price said.

“What I know of the BB&N community is this: we will all be there in our own way to lend a hand or listen to anyone in difficulty, to support each other and to keep the Murray family in our hearts, thoughts and prayers in these days and weeks ahead. »

Murry was of Irish descent and used to play hockey and do gymnastics, according to Price.

Previously, the teenager attended Pierce Middle School in Milton, Massachusetts.

She transferred at the request of her older brother, Adam, a 10th grader at Buckingham Browne & Nichols, Price said in her letter.

Milton Public Schools Superintendent James Jette said in a statement, “Cassidy left an indelible impression on her peers as well as the teachers and staff at Glover Elementary School, which she attended prior to Pierce Middle School. .

“There are no words to describe the tragic loss of this dynamic young girl who had so much to offer and her whole life ahead of her. »
