As I sit here writing, my heart just breaks for all of you. I still feel the pain of losing my Father and most recently my Mother. The pain will always be with you just under the surface but as time goes by the happy memories, the often quoted saying he had, the funny thing that happened will rise to the surface. These are the memories you keep alive and pass down to your children. This is how Uncle Tony will always be with you.

Gerry, David & Jonathan Murphy

My deep and sincere sympathy to Libby, Rose, Madelaine, Louis and their families. I'll always remember Tony as a man of honorable service to his country, his community - and most of all, to his family. His sharp wit could always bring a smile, and his sensible counsel was always available to anyone, any time.
He and Libby always set a wonderful table for all to partake from. I pray that this good man is now seated at God's table, and that we shall meet him again one fine day.
