Valentine's Tribute to an incredible lady's life - Edith Murphy - Norvern Shores' own Guiness World Book of Records waterskiier at age 90

Edith Murphy

That well-remembered, hearty laugh
The energy
The attitude of 'Let's Try It!' to challenges
The wind in her hair - sometimes from slalom waterskiing jaunts around her favourite Muskoka lake, behind her prized boat
Sometimes while mastering ice skating - or roller skating
Other memories of cross-country skiing - quiet times with whispering snow flakes tickling her face 
Wide smiles as family and friends acknowledge her achievements
 
The generosity, the quick movements
The love - more laughter
 
Three sons - much shaking of heads in disbelief at what Mother is attempting This Time!
Three sons - protective and protected
Three sons - such outpouring of love
Three sons - each misses his Mother in his own way
 
More challenges to overcome
Physical challenges that must be conquered
Acceptance of challenges that cannot be overcome
 
The energy
The attitude of 'I Did It' when challenges were overcome
Unstoppable energy - unstoppable hearty laughter
 
These are the images and memories of our late beloved Mother,
Edith

love, her three sons, 
Gary, John and Edward Murphy
