Thank you for visiting my blog today. Originally it was started in 2006 as a way to chronicle our overseas adventure, but it has turned into a place where I share my heart after my husband's untimely death at the age of 40. You can read more about his brief, but fierce battle with a rare cancer on his caring bridge site: http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/rob_murphy.

On Wednesday March 2nd two United States Airmen were killed and 2 others injured during a shooting at the Frankfurt Int'l Airport (about 45 minutes from where we live). March 5th the two killed were taken to Ramstein AB to be flown home for burial. Saturday morning hundreds lined the base roads, from the gate to the flight line, to pay tribute to these heroes as the hearses drove by. It was a very emotional experience as complete silence fell over the crowds and we watched all the military members, many who were security forces, salute the fallen.
Mary stopped the class feis and the whole school as well as other members of the comminty waited for the memorial procession.
