Sending condolences to the entire Murphy Family! I have been friends with Mr. Murphy since his joining of Prepaid Legal Services, now known as Legal Shield Services. More than being business partner's Mr. Murphy became a real genuine friend(Heart of Gold)! His word was bond, and he would drop what he was doing to help you! He loved his wife Mrs. Murphy and they did everything together, like 1 and 2! The 3 daughters I met during this time were he and his wife's heart and how they loved their 3 daughters! His passion to drive his RV to trainings, across the country, and to Las Vegas, NV, and take others was amazing! I could go on and on about his great servant hood! However, there is not enough time or words to express the loss of Mr. Murphy! We will keep you and your family in our prayers! Rest in Peace Mr. Murphy Sir! Johnny Smith and Family
