William and Phyllis Murphy 50th Anniversary
Anniversary: Murphy

(Cheech & Turk)
Happy 50th Anniversary
With All Our Love

So you made it 50 years!
With a lot of laughter
and a few tears.
Here’s to the both of you,
who are loved by all.
Though we may not have
listened to all we were told,
The love and cherished
memories we will always hold.
As Turk was well known to
play a good hand, in the kitchen
Cheech would always stand.
50 years may not have been
all peaches & cream,
But the love you gave us, some
people could only dream.
You’re the best parents,
always there to catch us when
we fall, we hope it
was worth it all!
An anniversary in Cancun
was spent with family,
Linda Murphy, Lisa Murphy,
Rita and Dave Bubniak,
and grandchildren, Chris
Clark, Matt Clark, Asialee Potts
and Martina Potts.
