“We were blessed to have had Amy & Dan as our neighbors for about 3 years. They quickly welcomed us to the neighborhood with their wonderful friendship, warmth and grace. Many memories of the Lake Bluff July 4th parade and parties that followed. Sharing plans, updates and progress reports as we both refinished our basements. Our daughter Erin and their daughter Jody became close friends immediately. Such a loss for us for all and we struggle to understand. We must take Amy's example of trusting our Lord and rejoicing in Dan's life and legacy. Love to you all, The Murphy family, Sue, Murph, Erin and Megan.”
