  1. Our love and prayers go out to you all. Evie was such a bright spot in our lives! Always a smile and a greeting of “Hi, baby!” with a hug to go with it. She will be missed by many people. I’ll always remember the Halloween, birthday, and various holiday celebrations we shared. I’ll never forget how thrilled she was to be a mom to each of you four beautiful people <3

  2. My sincerest condolences for your tragic loss. There are no words to be said that will alleviate the hollow pain that your hearts are experiencing, and although her smile will be missed dearly by so many here on earth, her spirit is healthy and free, and will live on in so many beautiful memories made with you all.
    Sending so much love and prayers to the entire family.

  3. Evie was a fun loving dear person. Her zest for life was so contagious. She had a sense of humor that spread laughter throughout the room. She loved her children beyond the world. She will be missed but never forgotten.

  4. You were the mother I never had. I can honestly say you were the first person I met who had unlimited amounts of love to give. The way you loved your kids made me feel warm just being next to such an unquenchable flame. I promise to carry on that same love in my life, Momma Murphy. I promise I am going to make you proud. I’m sorry I never got to say good bye. I will always carry love for you
