My heart clenched when I heard the news of your passing. Rest peacefully my friend for your work here has ended and you're on a new journey that no longer needs a body. You will be missed!

Craig, I will never forget you. You were such a giving person, willing to open your home and your life to me. I can remember us working a Krogers in Stafford, Texas some 30 years ago. We shared some m good times, even when you had moved to NYC. I love you, Rest Well.

To my best friend and Uncle Craig to Luke and Marlee… we miss you immensely. I remember how sad I was when you had to move to SoCal and how ridiculously happy I was when you moved back. Thank you for your friendship. Your heart was huge and we were so very lucky to have you in our lives. Brian needs to find a new roller coaster buddy, Luke needs to find a new tennis partner and Marlee is still drawing pictures for you. Saturdays at the Farmers Market will never be the same for me, but I will always treasure our hours of walking, gossip, laughter and tears. We all love you and miss you, especially me. Heaven is lucky to have you….visit me in my dreams. xoxo

Craig, I still cannot believe you are gone. I think about you every single day. You were a shining light in my life and I will never forget you. Thank for you being an amazing colleague but more importantly a trusted friend. I miss you immensely but trust that you are resting in peace. Sending so much love.

Craig: Oh, how you are loved. My wife Selma and I miss you tremendously. Our pain and grief at the realization that the fellowship we shared (with Marlowe) won't be enjoyed in the same way is immeasurable. Thank you my Brother for the light you shined for the brief time you shined it on us.

Craigy. You brought so much light and laughter into our lives. Meeting you was a blessing and being part of your circle was an honor. You will be missed but never forgotten. I feel so blessed to have spent time with you. The joy you had will forever be a gift to cherish. You were loved by many and I hope you felt that. XOXO Crissy

Craig, my first cousin and playmate, I will miss you. Words cannot describe the pain I feel. However, I find comfort in knowing granny, my mom and dad, as well as our uncle were there to greet you. You were such a beautiful spirit, adventurer, and loved by so many people. I love you….

The world lost a beautiful person in Craig Murphy. He loved his family very much and he cared deeply for their well being.Craig was a good friend to me and many others including Raphael, Shion, Dexter, Vanessa, Cris, Jamar, Alex, people he created an extended family with. We will miss him very much. He was a star and he would light up a room wherever he was. I never saw someone so easily charm and befriend people and make them feel good about themselves and each other. He was so intelligent and he worked extremely hard to achieve the things he wanted. He was so proud of his Granny and I did speak to her before she passed. She was a beautiful person. Craig loved his mother, Irene, and wanted her to be safe and cared for and to have love in abundance. My heart pours out. I send you a big hug and offer you my deepest condolences. Honor him and his legacy of love and devotion to all things beautiful including you and your family. All my best, Sandy

Craig. I’m missing you tons. Your star shone brighter than most everyone and you were a friend through and through. I hope you are having a good laugh with your granny right now, Ray Helen, and I that you get to see Viany. Tell my little sister hi and that I miss her. You are loved and missed by all of us. Godspeed on your journey and keep spreading your blessings my friend. With love and affection, Sandy

My dearest friend, to us left behind it feels as if you have been taken much too soon. There were so many plans that we had yet to put to action, places to visit, and doggy playdates Marlowe was hoping to enjoy. Tarikh and I thought we had time to create so many more memories and trips with you. Somehow, it seems your work here is done and there is work elsewhere for you to do (maybe heaven needs your skills and expertise more than us). I will keep believing that this is not goodbye. This is just an, 'until we meet again'. With a heavy heart, I will re-live the great memories, and look for you on the other side x x x.
