Legion provided exceptional memorial

I would like to thank the American Legion for the exceptional memorial and graveside services they held for Murph (Pat Murphy). It was a beautiful day and you all did a wonderful job. Mike Case, you were the “go-to guy” and were there (at my home) for me and my family every day. Tom and Connie Ward and Tammie Rush, thank you so much! The dinner was excellent. I know you spent many hours preparing it. Thanks also, to everyone who brought side dishes and desserts. Georgie Hotch, you did a great job on the pamphlets and flyers at the last minute. My granddaughter Diyet and her husband Robert Van de Sleuth, the songs you sang were the perfect choice for Murph. Most of all, thank you so much to all of you who supported Murph and I with your prayers words of kindness, phone calls, financial aid and friendship during the last few months of his life. I appreciate you all!
