Condolence & Memory Journal

Al played for our wedding. In addition to playing piano, he led Bible studies at Chatham Presbyterian. I so appreciated his enthusiasm. My prayers are with all his loved ones during this difficult time.

I worked several years with Al at Samuel Music in Springfield IL and again in Peoria - we loved his company and he will be missed!

Al was one of our favorite customers. He always had a smile when he came through the door, and never left before sharing a story. My deepest condolences to his family.

Our deepest sympathy to the Al Murphy family. We all loved him very much. Many wonderful memories of Al. He taught us how to play piano!

Al, or Uncle Al as most of our church knew him by, was a wonderfully big hearted man! He was also a gifted musician and colleague of mine of whom I adored dearly. He loved his Father in Heaven and church music and combined those two in making some incredible experiences for others to glory in. I loved his laugh, his humor and his friendship. I will miss Al tremendously and pray for peace and comfort for his family and friends.
