It is with deepest sadness and earnest joy that I read the passing of Pastor Murphy. He was the Pastor I first remember in my youngest preschool youth and I will always remember the words when I asked my parents how I got my name..."Why you were named after Mrs. Murphy." It is with joy I look forward to seeing Pastor again someday. My deepest condolences to the family.
