Inscription.  "Murph" Aboussie was a "People's Politician". His first and last concern was for the "other guy". He believed in youth and always had time to listen. He knew that the youth would be our leaders of tomorrow. The youth had to be given the opportunity to speak out and participate actively in politics. He knew it was important to encourage them in that direction, and to challenge them to be the best they could be. "Murph" was a leader of the 9th Ward Democratic Organization. He worked effectively for the election of those candidates whom he believed to be the best voice for the people. He was known for his concern and caring for others. He was always there when someone needed him. His foremost job in life was taking care of people. Many enjoy greater glory, fame, wealth and recognition, but none will be regarded more highly by his fellow man than Martie "Murph" Aboussie.
