To the extended Murphy Family - I have such fond memories of Grandma Bea over the years, especially the card playing at Marilyn and Franks with my parents. They could get into such arguments about that game! Bea loved life and lived it to the fullest, esp. in her later years. She also loved all the Murphy grandchildren. You all are her legacy and she will continue to live through all of you. You are blessed to have had her for so many wonderful years. The extended Lamers family sends their love.
