Heartbreaking condolences to Julie, Fran, Bill and their families....I have known Esther since high school and attended her and Rick's reunions, 25th through 55th, and always looked forward to spending time with them...Esther was kind, warm, generous and loving and always made everyone around her feel comfortable...Now, she and Rick are together and smiling down on all of us....
Much love to everyone,
Esther & Dick always welcomed me with open arms and a warm heart! I was honored to attend many large family holiday dinners (they hosted more dinners than the Waltons!), countless Easter eggs hunts and singing too loudly with Esther in church (which embarrassed Julie and Ricky). My deepest prayers go out to Julie who has lost so much over the last few years and I thank God for John, Jake, Courtney and Cassie for their love & solid strength in helping this family to prevail at such difficult times. All our Love, The Murphy’s Bill (UB) ,Sue, Cady, Michelle and Shannon.
