Not sure what to say?

Dear Dorsie and family,

I am the daughter of Charles and Dorothea Murphy and sister to David and Bernie. We spent many times at Uncle Len and Clara's farm while we lived in Morocco, In. I was especially close to Amy and Joe and I were the same age. I have many fond memories of Mike and am so sorry for your loss.

Mike & I are first cousins born just 4 days apart; before & during grade school Mike & I were together as much as possible - usually on one of the farms - Morocco, them Mt. Ayr. We had lots of fun around those farms, getting away with most our episodes ! Mike was very inventive - he could hypnotize a chicken in a flash & leave looking cross-eyed at a line in the dirt he had made! The list goes on & on. I will always remember Mike and our times together!

Dear Aunt Dorsie and Family,

I am so sorry for your loss! I have fond memories of Uncle Mike from early childhood. I learned to play cards at his kitchen table when I was 8, and loved when he pulled out the reel-to-reel home movies! He always had Fresca in the refrigerator, too!
Uncle Mike was the best brother for my dad, Joe. I know that over the years, after I moved on to college, their relationship brought my dad a lot of happiness. What a great reunion they are having...
