There's a hole in the world today! A large hole left by the passing of Doctor Murray.We who had the privilege of knowing this extraordinary person shall miss his ever present positive attitude and sunny disposition. It seems he never had a" bad day".
We're sure that God has a special place reserved for one of his most special humans while we are left with the pleasant memories of having known him. It's small consolation for the hole in our world he leaves.

Dr Murray was my doctor when I was just a little girl..He was so kind and tenderhearted, I never felt afraid. I had a recurring hematoma, followed by several procedures for skin grafting. My last procedure was when I was 16. I wrote him a letter as an adult to express my gratitude and affection. He was one of my childhood hero's. I am sure we will all see him again in a better, happier place called heaven. I am sorry for your loss, those closest to him. He accomplished and fulfilled his purpose here. I feel blessed that he took care of me.

It is with profound gratitude I say "Thanks Dr. Joe Murray for what you gave to me and my four children. You gave me my husband who was then 29 yrs. old in l963 thirty-two added years of life. He was able to see his children grow up. You were not only a fine surgeon you were also a friend and mentor to our family. Farewell fine man. We will never forget."

The life Dr. Murray lived was truly ordained! He made life better for so many. I thank him for opening the doors for transplantation!

I worked for a short time at Children's Hospital during the 1980s and came to know of Dr. Murray's marvelous work with young patients. The wonders he performed are far beyond my poor powers to describe. Countless lives have been saved or made better by Dr. Joseph Murray. He has certainly already heard the Lord's greeting, “Well done, my good and faithful servant.” My condolences to my former Boston Globe colleague Meg and the entire Murray family.

Joe Murray was a compassionate Renaissance physician. His work benefited many thousands of patients, yet he had no arrogance, bravado or false pride about it. He constantly acknowledged and credited his partner Bobbi who, with wisdom and love, kept him grounded and oriented towards his life's ambition.
He was also a gentleman who treated everyone whether patient, colleague or shopkeeper with kindness and courtesy. He literally "walked with kings nor lost the common touch.
He was not just a physician, he was a Catholic physician, a loyal member and staunch supporter of the Guild of St. Luke of Catholic Physicians in the Boston Archdiocese.
Those of us honored to have known him and to have worked with him will see that his legacy does not die with him as he will be a paradigm for virtue for physicians of the future.

To The Murray Family

I did not know Dr. Murray but what an incredible talent he had to transplant organs and to give individual an opportunity to lived longer. Isaiah 33: 24 tells us “No resident will say I am sick.” in the near future we will not have to face sickness anymore. Nevertheless Dr. Murray's talent was incredible.

What can we say now that Dr. Murray has left us?
He was more than a Nobel laureate, he was our sons lifeline for many years, living longer than expected because of the great humanity of this skillfull and honorable surgeon. He fought for our sons life, only to lose him at the age of seventeen.
Now heartbroken, he helped our family, and we are lucky to have called him 'friend' throughout the last thirty years. Godspeed, Dr. Murray, you very best of men.
The Wint family, Colorado.
