On Memorial Day I can’t help but think of our dear friends A.J and Francine Murphy and the image that appeared in the Houston Chronicle “Remembering The Fallen” on Memorial Day, 2009. Francine is probably in “quiet reflection” at the US Houston National Cemetery today.

You’ve heard of B.B. King,
You may have heard of Albert King
You may not have heard of Freddie King,
All blues musicians of renowned.
But there is only one
king of The Blues —

Mr. B. B. King

Tell me now,
How long has
The thrill been gone?
Forty-five years?
Never for Blues fans!
May the thrill never be gone.
