For years, Tim Murphy was homeless; he was forgotten. He was one of those people on streets that we try not to look at, cause the sight of them is just too painful. But we’re all cut from the same cloth, Tim knew that. He knew how connected all of us are. He knew that if it wasn’t for his three buddies, that Tim wouldn’t be alive on September 11th to save the lives of Diane, and Warren, and James. And we wouldn’t be able to tell Tim’s son, that his dad didn’t die a broken man living on the streets, Sean. But he was as brave and noble as the best of us. We lay him to rest today, a hero.
