Dermot, Lilly, Caroline & Steven Murphy
We would like to say how grateful we are to our loving families, good friends, amazing neighbours, and our caring and such a generous community for all your support during our traumatic and devastating day-to-day loss we have to endure.
We would like to thank the following:
Denise Symth who ran the Dublin City Marathon and raised an amazing €3,075.00.
Munster Fire& Safety for printing Viv on the Temple Street T-shirts.
Millstreet Community School, Cloghoula NS, Geraldine Davis (Cork mini marathon) and to each and every member of the Millstreet community who kindly donated money. We would also like to thank Sgt. Paul Lynch from the Millstreet Garda Station and all those that helped with traffic flow during Vivienne’s funeral service.
Finally but not least we have to say how amazed but not surprised we are of a very special young lady Sophia, so sweet and kind who donated her Confirmation money to Temple Street Hospital to help other children like her BFF (Best Friend Forever) Viv.
In these few months since her passing Vivienne’s honour has raised a total of €7,416.75 for Temple Street Children’s Hospital for the ICU Department.
No matter how young she was she made a massive impact on us as a family not to mention everybody else and is still making that impact.
“Viv.……Never forget that you are one of a kind. Never forget that if there weren’t any need for you in all your uniqueness to be on this earth, you wouldn’t be here in the first place.”
