My condolences to the entire Murphy family. I loved watching the video of a family filled with love. My husband Paul and I enjoyed seeing Tom at church and visiting with him at our home.

Tom was a couple years ahead of me in school . We worked together at Loring Hall in Hingham. He showed me a few things , and dragged me along on some very interesting weekends . I still remember those days with a smile . We got in touch with each other a few years back and I’m glad we were able too. I pray for peace for his family .
