Not sure what to say?

Dear Murphy Family,
I saw your Dad’s obit in today’s Lombardian. So sorry to hear of your loss. Know that all of you are in our thoughts and prayers.
Mike and Gerri Roycroft

I met Jim and his wife Jean at the navy reunion in St. Louis and was at many navy reunions after that with them. What fun. At the second reunion I attended we somehow started this running joke between us and he was Mr. Murphy and I was Mrs. Young. That stuck with us through all the years we have known each other. I will dearly miss you Mr. Murphy. You were a dear friend and I am so glad you were a part of my life. I know you and your best buddy, my brother in law Don McCurry are up...

We are so sorry for your loss. God bless you and watch over you during this challenging time.

Honored to have known him. "Murph" will be greatly missed. RIP my friend

Hey Mr Murphy going to miss that wicked sense of humor all the fun times at the reunions. I have so many great memories starting with a trip to Chicago, your family coming to New Jersey, and it just goes on and on. I will put them away for now and keep them for that time when I need a smile . I am not sure if it is a good idea to have you and Don in heaven together. Fair winds and Following Seas Mr Murphy.

I count myself blessed to have known you Jim. Rest in Peace.

Offering our deepest condolences during this difficult time.
