IT'S ALWAYS FUN COMING HOME! I just returned from my 30 year college Homecoming this weekend.  What a joy it was touring the campus and remembering some really great times.  I walked the campus, went to my old dorm, visited the bookstore and of course went to the game.

For the many thousands who Dr. Breeden taught, and the tens of thousands who heard his famous University of North Texas One O'clock Lab Band, as it performed throughout the U.S. and many foreign countries, I asked his close friend and colleague, James Riggs, if he would let me publish the eulogy he delivered. Here are Jim's thoughts: On this day celebrating Leon Breeden's life, I am deeply honored to be the spokes...
