As children, I remember our family traveling from the Bronx to visit our cousins in the country. We had fun visits in Scarsdale and mostly behaved. However, I remember aunt Kathleen's famous phrase "glory be" when we got rambunctious. May she rest in peace as we extend our sympathies and prayers to the Murphy's.
