Julia, today, on the day of Jim’s service, we want to add our words of warmth to the many that you have received, to tell you how much we have enjoyed Jim’s laughter and good friendship over these many years in the desert. Our best to you for the future, and we hope to see you soon.

Some of my fondest memories of Jim were spent talking about the RV lifestyle. We got our motor coach not long after Jim got his last one in Houston. He was a big influence on June and me and we will always be grateful for our time together in Galveston. Now he's on the "Highway to Heaven". God bless you Julia and the rest of the Murphy Family.

Julia and Family, We wish we could be there this week to celebrate Jim's life. We have had so many great celebrations in the desert with you both and can't imagine a season going by not seeing you both here together. We will miss Jim's wonderful sense of humor and the harassment he always gave Margie in return for hers. He had a great life...just TOO short! May the SUN always shine down on him while he rests in peace.

Deepest sympathy to the family of Jim Murphy. His love for you was true and steady. Celebrate his life, keep his memory alive, and appreciate the spirit of a good man.

Jim Murphy always had a smile and a warm hug whenever we had an occasion to meet...always at the birth of a grandchild, a graduation, a hospital visit when a loved one was sick. I enjoyed those dinners and visits we shared through the years after my son, John Clayton Dods, married his daughter, Lisa Ellen Murphy. He will be missed.
