1 thought on “William “Bill” Barry Murphy Sr.”

  1. Dear Murphy family, you have my deepest sympathy. The loss of a loved one can bring great sorrow and pain but you are not alone. In Gods word the bible at 2Corinthians 1:3,4 it says “The God of all comfort, comforts us in all our trials” so you can gain comfort from our loving God and his word.
    Acts 24:15 says “There is going to be a resurrection ” that’s also wonderful to know because you can see your dear loved one again. I hope this was a source of encouragement to the family.
