Simply put, the Bible says that the dead are in the grave, awaiting the resurrection. (John 5:28, 29) They are not suffering or in any kind of pain, for “the dead know nothing at all.” (Ecclesiastes 9:5) In his teachings, Jesus likened death to a deep sleep. (John 11:11-14) Thus, we have no need to fear those who have fallen asleep in death or to appease them by making offerings to them.  Sometimes, God only lends the world his children only for a little while. No parent plans to bury his or her child but when God sends His Angels to bring His child home; much sooner than we planned, we'll brave the grief that comes and try to understand.

As a family unit, we gather in the spirit of love to celebrate the life of Demetrious Murphy, the son of Cynthia Murphy and Demetrious Lamont Taylor. Demetrious’ earthy journey began on October 25, 1997, in Brunswick, Georgia. Demetrious was a 2017 graduate of Brantley County High School. After graduation, and searching for a new beginning, Demetrious migrated to Las Vegas, Nevada, and became gainfully employed at The D Las Vegas Hotel and Casino. Demetrious was very creative and unique. He could construct modes of transportation from plain paper. In high school, he won a science fair honor because he constructed an airplane from paper. He also enjoyed repairing vintage trucks and cars.

His memory will forever be cherished by his family and friends: loving mother, Cynthia Murphy of Brunswick, GA; father, Demetrious Lamont Taylor Brunswick, GA; grandmother, Anna Louis Brantley of Brunswick, SC; and a host of loving aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends
