Dear Danny, Denise and Dawn,
First of all, I all so sorry to hear that your Father passed away. Your Dad helped my family so much back in the mid 60's when my Father, Jack Murphy was killed in a car crash at Cicero Ave and Vollmer Rd.
Your Dad was working for Donnelly at the time and he hired my Mother, Joyce Murphy, so that she could work by typing and keep our family in Tinley. Then your Dad started E & L Enterprises, and hired my Mom to run one of the depots out of our garage. It was tough, but your Dad Helped so many people, especially us.
BUT... I have pictures of your Dad driving me and Mom and Ed to St. George Church for my wedding Day in his Caddy to the church on my wedding day. (10/20/1972!) I have pictures of that if you want them. (We got stopped by a train - that was funny!)
Anyway, I want you 3 to know how much I appreciated every thing that your Dad and Mom did to help my Mom when she became a widow.
Just to let you know, your Dad would shop in Jewel-OSCO and he would make it a point to say Hello to me. Your Dad had the greatest smile!
You are in my thought and prayers. If you want me to find some of those pictures of the wedding, let me know. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
God bless and hold you all strong together...
