My sincere condolences to the entire Murphy Family. I have enjoyed my friendship with Brian over the years and quite sad to hear of his father Donald. You are all in my prayers.

Don was manager of the drum corps when I was drum major. Technically I was an adult, but still susceptible to the whims of youth, Don would always take me to task and hold me to high standards. I am forever thankful for his influence and guidance during those years, and for his steady leadership of a group that has been a source of friendship, pride and joy my entire life.
