I am so sorry for your loss! I learned so much from Pastor Murphy when i was young and growing up in the church. I know him and his wife were not apart for long they had a beautiful reunion and are together again.

I remember back in 1998 when I came home with Nick for Thanksgiving. They both made me feel like part of the family. I heard a lot of wisdom from this family that weekend. The impact is still felt in our lives and their legacy lives on. Grateful to have known them. Praying for the Murphy family.

Oh my what a blessing dear Pastor Murphy has been to me & my family (Mom, Dad & Mom-Mom). Such a hardworking, faithful man to the very end. I will never forget the many times he would call our home to pray for us. It was an honor to help him on some land record projects in the court house, & to attend his Sunday School classes on several occasions. I will remember his voice forever. I know Sister Murphy made sure everything was just so for his arrival. What a joyous reunion going on. They will be missed. Thank you Tim & Kim for sharing them with all of us. Love & Prayers, Gary Holmes.
