Dedication of Murphy Court
A loss, an honor, bittersweet so true
For the life of a son is ever love to you
Memories of younger days shared in joy
Be it a favored game or a treasured toy
Wife and children so blessed was he
In their souls he shall ever be
A life in dedicated service he did give
A son in honor and love shall ever live.
