TO the Murray Family,
Iam so late in offering my condolence.
Please fogive me. My ninety years years surely have slowed me down.
I feel privileged to have been present at Dr. Murray's funeral.
It was a tribute he truly deserved .

I served as Clinical Nurse in the Division OF Plastic Surgery at the Brigham under Dr Murray's leadership.
It was an honor.We all know he was a gifted surgeon. However ,the kindness and consideration with which he treated his patients was very, very special. I am thankful to have had the privilege.



With Sincere Sympathy,

Catherine (KAY) Peiffer

I was a 17 year old patient of Dr. Murray in 1968. It was with my parents love and insight and Dr. Murray's skill and compassionate care my life was changed forever after Dr. Murray performed a new surgical procedure on my jaw.
It was complicated and there were times Dr. Murray met me for a weekend appointment at Wellesley hospital as I was a college student living a distance away. He was my strength and my hero always. I felt so very proud to have been his patient over the years while reading of his many accomplishments. I wrote him a letter and he remembered clearly who I was and wrote back a letter that once again reflected the compassionate man that he was.
This past Thanksgiving weekend my daughter was visiting and reminded me of the man I had told her about years before who helped me find the gift of self confidence after my surgery.
I decided to write him a note as I knew he must be getting on in years to once again thank him for his gift. I felt so deeply saddened to read that he had just passed. I am so very sorry.
So I write this note not to my beloved Doctor Murray but to his family to say thank you.
May the Lord bless you all and may all your precious memories carry you through at this very sad time. He will always be loved.

Dr. Murray, I would not be here today if it were not for you. My life came after my father's transplant in 1963. I was born in 1970. Thank you for my life and the life of my children and the future generations to come.

There are individuals who enrich peoples's lives and leave the world a far better place because of their dedication, willingness to reach beyond the standard and brilliance to envision the future. Dr Joseph Murray was a man who left humanity and all those he touched better off, because of his far reaching talents, brilliant mind and deep compassion. May we have the fortune to see more like him.

I was deeply saddened to hear of the passing of this brilliant man who was as kind, compassionate and humble as he was smart. I had my first transplant at the old Peter Bent Brigham and my second one in 2002. His genius allowed me to become a mother and a grandmother. My husband and my daughters will be eternally grateful to him. Our deepest sympathies to all of you.
