  1. Murph, we will truely miss you. Having you and Thresa for neighbors has been a blessing for 34 years. There are so many pleasant memories, including celebrating your 65 th wedding anniversary at our house with neighbors in attendance and a small “Wedding Cake”. Paul and I love you, and so does our dog Moose. All we had to do is open the door and say, “We’re going to Murphy’s,” and he darted across the street to your door. You and Theresa lived wonderful, full lives, and never missed an opportunity to be kind, never missed a party or the opportunity to have fun. Congratulations on a life well lived.
