"It's so difficult, especially at this time, to fully express our deepest heartfelt sorrow for the loss of your Mother, my Aunt.  It is comforting to know that she is not alone.  To all my Murphy cousins and their families, my deepest condolences.  I know everyone says it, and mean it, if there is anything at all, do not hesitate to let me help.
Your Mom was a spark in the family.  I will always remember her with great energy and very positive and with great affection.
Franny & Joey"

""Mama Murphy, the moment we met you were a ray of sunshine and when you embraced me in a hug I felt like I was hugging my own grandmother who passed away years ago from the same, your hug brought tears to my eyes because I felt your love and kindness. The way you smiled could make the darkest moments brighter, you had such a sweet and loving soul, though I did not know you for very long, you have my love along with the love of all of your children and family. Knowing you definitly made an impact on my life and i will cherish your memory always. You may be gone physically but you will forever remain in all of our hearts. You've got your Angel wings now mama Murphy,  may you bless and shine down on us all from the heavens above.""

"We will surely miss You, Auntie El. Your laughter leaves an empty, hollow echo. I know that You are in great company, now. Remember us as we  pray for You......and Yours. Your kids will be needing Your strength and comfort. So, as You pray  for them, we will be praying for and missing You. The world is much emptier without You

"Mommy, I was your first.  And you were my first and most lasting and consistent love.  We didn't always agree, but you knew I loved you with all my heart, and I know you loved me that much too.  I fought for you and you fought for me.  You are a piece of me that can never be replaced."
