1st Father's Day.

June 15th, 2014, 7pm

That can mean so many different things. To me it is only the beginning of firsts. My Father passed away on Monday after battling cancer for over 2 years. At the time of his passing, he was peaceful, at his home, and I was standing beside him, holding his hand. I am thankful that those three last things came together it seems by design almost, however today I am profoundly sad. I must have picked up my phone a half dozen times today in order to call him, to ask him how he’s doing, to wish him a happy Father’s Day, and to tell him how much I love him. I woke up and immediately thought of the hour and fifteen minute drive it would take to get to him, and found myself checking the weather on my phone.

It is a day for me that I will now look to focus inward and remember all of the great and everlasting memories that I have in my heart. Happy Father’s Day, Michael Louis Murphy. You are forever in my heart.

Adrian, Sanna, Christine and David Wade said thanks.
