My deepest condolences to the Murphy Family, I heard of the loss of Tom while out of the country, as sorrow turn to joy in thinking of all the great memory’s Tom had created while growing up next door on Touareuna Road, from hunting trips with his dogs Traveler and Dutch, trips to Schoharie Creek to bull frog hunt, skiiing trips over the river to Homestead and then Fox Run, early morning hour golf caddie jobs, lawn and garden work, and throw in a few sales call trips all over the Capital District and as the stories could go on... Tom, Thank You for all you have done growing up to you and your great family, many fond memories that will alway be with me, Rest In Peace My Friend You will never in my life time be forgotten

Respectfully with Sorrow
Stephen Bradt
