Our sincere sympathy to all of the Murphy's during this sad time. Mrs. Murphy was such a sweet and gentle lady. I have so many wonderful memories of her. She was a wonderful friend to my Mom and they had such a bond even getting groceries together every Thursday. You were blessed to have all those years and you were so wonderful to keep her close to you and take care of her until the very end. Treasure all those memories and love. She is together with Mr. Murphy and Tommy again.
Take care and we hope we can hug you at a later time.
Rosemary and Gary Norman

So many memories of Marg and Lois making the "mega-grocery runs" together, and the $1.44 day trips to Woolco. Good thing they drove those big old Fords! Lots of love and laughs shared between our families growing up. Sending hugs to you all.
