Chapter 5: The Breath of Life

Whether we have someone in our lives for one day, one year, or a life time, we need to appreciate them in our life. I cherished every moment and continue to do so today. Nick will live on through the Nicholas J. Murphy Foundation. Nick will live on through Breona and Aaron and Pam. Nick will live on in our hearts. Nick Murphy will never be forgotten. For that, I am very happy.

My youngest son, Nick Murphy, was killed on November 19, 2016. Prior to that day, I never used Facebook on any regular basis. I thought it was a waste of time and a waste of energy. I always wondered why so many people cared so much about other people’s lives. It took a life altering event like the death of my son for me to understand the power of Facebook and the power of people.
