The RNLI saves lives at sea.

Martin Murphy

Also known as: Murf.

It's coming up for 5 years since I lost Martin. He is still the love of my life.

Martin was a fisherman. He fished out of Kilkeel harbour, Co Down. He loved life and he was good at it. He had a great, madcap sense of humour. He loved Billy Joel's music. He was highly intelligent. I feel honored that he loved me. I wish we'd had more time but I cherish the time we did have.

Thanks to the RNLI bringing him back so we could say goodbye. I miss him everyday.
