    My condolences to the Murtaugh family. A great bunch of people – and i do mean a BUNCH of people. I have respected and admired them for years. The patriarch and matriarch of this wonderful family have to be pleased with how all of their hard work has manifested throughout this huge clan. 53 nieces and nephews. Wow.

    My condolences on your loss.
    Growing up on Ruggles St a block from the Murtaughs, I have a lot of fond memories of Tim. Especially remember our pheasant hunts.
    May your family find peace and love in the memories you cherish !
