RIP Father Murphy.
Thank you for stating perfectly how I have always felt about Merle.

RIP, sweet guy. :

Wow I was not alive for his reign, but I know this was one gentle giant. I wish sacks were recorded then, he also went to 14 straight probowl's what a tank! He was such a soft spoken man, and pursuing an acting job and commentator job was successful. RIP!

I saw more of him on Little House on the Prairie than on the FB Field myself. Always like him though.
