Mrs. Murphy (AKA Granny), I meet you in 1977 and I thank you for the 21 years that I knew you as a mother in law. You always made me fill like I was one of the family. I know that Paw Paw was waiting at the entrance to Heaven with open arms to welcome you home. My thoughts and prayers to your family. RIP Granny

I wanted to add one memory I will always remember about Granny and PawPaw as we called them. The afternoon before I was to go to
the hospital to have mine and Edwards daughter I called to let them know. I told them I had to be at the hospital at 6am and would you believe, when we drove up they were already there waiting on us. Granny and PawPaw were the best. My heart breaks to know they are both gone now but I will never forget them. They were the ones
who introduced me to Edward.

This was one special lady to me. She was the best mother in law in the world. She was so special in so many ways. She was an awesome wife, mother, grandmother and friend. I loved her so much and will miss her so much. To the family you were family and to this day I still consider you family. I know we will miss her but now she is with Paw Paw and her mother and daddy in heaven. Granny you may be gone but you will never be forgotten.

Mama, I love you so much.
We've had so much fun these past 21 yrs. We've traveled many places seen many things
And shared so many memories.
You have inspired me my whole life. You worked so hard to take care of all of us.
You lived life to the fullest.
I know God called you home and your enjoying your welcome to Haven but I miss you so much already. Hugs to Daddy and Granny and papa. I promised not to be sad but my heart is 💔 empty. I know I will be ok cause I know you were happy.
I Love you Mama.
