Companion to JoAnne

July 9, 1995 to August 15, 2001

Murphy belonged to JoAnne Erickson of Canada. Her family was moving down to Springfield IL and she needed a place to board Murphy until she could locate a house and city that allowed pigs as pets. Murphy was a mama's boy. So much so that he did not take well to others. It was heartbreaking when Murphy was left here. He wanted his mama, but I kept telling him soon he'd get to go home. He slipped into a depression and became very sick. He could not bear being with out his mama and he passed away one evening. Murphy's memory lives on here at Pigs Home N Rome. He is buried in our piggy cemetary under an oak tree.
