My favorite memories of Aunt Minnie revolve around her, Aunt Lillian, Mom and Grandma all crammed in the kitchen fixing dinner for everyone. Seems like it was always hot and cramped with kids underfoot, but they would be laughing and telling stories and making the best Sunday dinner you ever had! There was always so much joy just being together and now they are reunited in Heaven. I imagine their joy is tenfold!
For Dennis, Jerry and dear Uncle Sam, I pray for comfort. Aunt Minnie was an Angel on earth and it hurts to lose her.

Mrs Murphy was a great neighbor of mine, very kind and sweet. She loved the outside, you would always see her working in her flower bed or doing her daily walk. She was also very considerate of others and loved to talk. She loved to bake. At Christmas she would bring my wife and I a pecan pie. She will be greatly missed. Rest in Heaven.

Mrs Murphy treated me as a member of her family from the first time we met. She welcomed this lost college student from Alaska with open arms. She would fuss at me for not bringing my laundry for her to do. She insisted that I ate well believing me to be malnourished . She was always considerate after a night on the town, all the while giving Jerry a reproving looks. BTW, I loved the double standard there. I believe she would have adopted me off the street, if that is what she thought I needed. I was a long way from home back then and she gave me a second one. Bless you and thank you Mrs. Murphy, I will always remember you. With Love, Jim.

I have many sweet and precious memories of Aunt Minnie. I always looked forward to the special cakes she baked for our family gatherings; she gave me many handwritten recipes. She never forgot our birthday's and I loved receiving her cards. I can only imagine her glorious homecoming and the angels singing, with Grandma Graham, mother, Aunt Irene, Grandpa Graham and all our other loved ones. I extend my deepest and heartfelt sympathy to Dennis, Jerry and Uncle Sam. I lift you up and pray for your peace.
