  1. Thanking God for the life of Leroy Murphy and praying for strength and comfort to Dayna, Adam, and family.
    With love, Donna and Richard Ridgway

  2. Dave was at the same retirement home as my granddad. I would try to go visit with them every evening during dinner. I enjoyed visiting with Dave. Such a highlight to my day.

    My sympathy is extended to you.

  3. My deepest sympathy goes to the family. May the promises in the Bible at John 5:28,29 of an earthly resurrection and Revelation 21:4 when Jehovah God does away with pain, mourning and death bring the family comfort. Don’t we look forward to this time that is soon to be here.
