I want to tell my father how sorry I am that I haven’t been a better son. I’ve always looked up to you and have always wondered why no matter how hard I tried, I could never be like you. Obviously Grandma did something right raising you and I’m extremely sad that she has passed on. The fact that I’m not able to be there for you during this time weighs heavily on me. Grandma was such a firecracker and I’m extremely proud to say that I’m her grandson. I just wish I was able to tell her goodbye. The universe now has her and I’m quite certain that she’ll let us know “it’s all good”. I love you Dad and I’m so sorry I can’t be there for you.

I am so sorry that Grandma Murphy is no longer with us. It is a comfort that she didn’t have to suffer long and that she will be with her husband and daughter in heaven. I wish we could be there to give our support. Please know that we are there in our hearts and she will never be forgotten. All my love, Debbie Murphy
