Mary Kay and John Murphy
Photo is of Mary Kay Murphy and her father, John F. Murphy. Taken at end of Mary Kay's visit home from Africa to Chicago, Illinois in 1999.

I'm not positive about the handwriting on the note at the bottom of the photo. The handwriting if from the back of the photo. I think it is Mary Kay's mother's handwriting.
