A Song for Kyrie

Kyrie Murphy

In 2011, I wrote a song called “Thorns and Blossoms,” honoring a dear lady who had just passed away. It was used at her memorial service. Since then, this song has been used several times for funerals and memorials, the most recently at Wendi’s sister’s funeral on April 7, 2016.

A friend of our daughter-in-law had an eight-year-old daughter named Kyrie Murphy who developed a terrible infection and multiple complications which ended her life. A GoFundMe page was started to help with medical expenses during her 30-day stay at Mayo Clinic; the campaign is still going on, but now the proceeds will go for her funeral as well. Use the link above to view the page and to contribute. (Kyrie’s nickname was “Squid” so that’s why it says #teamsquid on the photo.)

So my latest dedication for this memorial song is to Kyrie and her mom, in whose arms she died on Monday, September 12. You can listen to “Thorns and Blossoms” on Bandcamp.

Clear Lake Jam a Success

Ken and Sandy Wagman hosted the Clear Lake Jam in Milton, WI on Sunday, September 4. Performers took 35-minute slots and had a great time. Several people on boats on the lake enjoyed the music as well!
