Mrs Murphy was a very special lady to my family and me. I am so sorry I am just now seeing her obituary. My deepest sympathy to Don and Family and Eddie and Family. May God give you comfort and peace.

This has been very hard for my brother-in-law, Eddie, because he loved his Mother more than anything. He would tell me stories about all the little things she did for him when they were growing up on Georgia Street. Even when he became a father and had Matt, she still called him "My Little Boy" Ruby was always kind and thoughtful to me and my husband and Mother and Father. She made sure to give me a Christmas Present every year or order me something special from Avon. Until she wasn't able, you did not catch her without her make up and pretty red lips. In her last years she told me stories about growing up in Florida, having her first job and meeting Ezra. I can think of no one who had more faith in the Lord and could tell you any Scripture from the Bible with out blinking and eye. Ruby was a Loving, Giving, and most unselfish woman I have had the joy of knowing in my life. You will be missed greatly by your two sons and all of your family. It brings comfort to know you have received God's most wonderful Gift to us, Eternal Life with God the Father, the Son and Holy Spirit forever and ever, AMEN

There are words to describe how I feel at this moment. After looking back, a lot of memories have faded through the years. What really shakes me to reality, is my Mother is no longer here in the flesh. I do know that she did LOVE me and would have done anything to help me out. Her dementia clouded her thinking and we could tell that, if she misspoke. When she was in Ruston, it tore me up when I had to leave the Nursing Home to drive back to Monroe. She always wanted for me to call her when I got home, so she would know I was safe. Going back to my childhood, I didn't realize what it took for Mother to take care of us. I didn't realize that Birthdays and Holidays had to be planned out and she did her best to make us happy during those special days. As a young boy, she knew what to for do and say me when things weren't going so good .As Mother's health started to fail her, we did try to do our best so she could live as long as she did. I would like to thank everyone that helped us take care of Mother, as time went by. There are too many people to name and they know that I say "THANK YOU" and may God Bless You for every thing you did for my Mother. It will take us, Sherry,Matt, and Karen a while to get over losing Mother. But when I look at her photo, memories just come back as how well she coped with raising me and Don. Even through our adult lives, She never stopped encouraging and advising us. Our Mother, Ruby Nell Mother, believed in her Savior Jesus Christ and his teachings were a major part of her lifestyle. She always a Prayer Warrior and if she heard that someone needed Prayer, she would put that person on her Prayer List. This is so difficult to write because she was my best friend in Life, and now she is with Jesus. I can only think about what Mother would say about something I was getting ready to do. When you see me, I am a reflection of my Mother's and my Dad's influence. Mother I say 'THANK YOU" for everything that you have for me and my family. When we last spoke to you, we were trying to say that we LOVE you and hope you will get better. You did get better and was able to go back home to Georgia Street, where you was Mother and Wife. You was so wonderful to us as we grew up and you never stopped caring about us. We never stopped caring for you and continued to pray for you during your illnesses. You are now "safe" in the arms of Jesus and "suffering" is now gone. Thanks for being my Mother.
