Dear Mrs. Brophy (Miss Hepner), It is 2014 and I'm so sorry to have just learn of Mr. Brophy's death. I'm from the class of 1971 and for one year (one of your first at BHS), you were my home room teacher. I recall how kind and fun you were. Back in the day, my mother - Marie Cantin - was a church organist. And one day she came home from a wedding at St. John's church saying she just played organ at the wedding of 2 BHS teachers: Mr. Brophy and Miss Hepner. And hearing the news, I was so happy for you. I recall how so many people admired and respected both Jim and you. It was truly happy news to learn that you two, both such great individuals (teachers) at BHS, would get married. And today, though sad to learn of Jim's passing in 2005 - so young - (as well, my Mom passed in 2005), it is comfortng to learn that what seemed at the time like a match that would last, actually turned out to be so. Please accept my belated deep condolences. As well, I hope it a comfort for you to know that so many of us at BHS cared deeply about you and Jim; though we were probably too young & afraid at the time to have expressed it. Fondly...

I would like to send my deepest sympathies to the Brophy's Family. My freshman year I was looking for a way to stay out of the streets. Not knowing how to swim I joined Bull Frogs. That was the greatest thing I done with my life because Mr. B changed it and made me a better person. I still can see his smile when we won the CCC South my sophomore year that was the best feeling ever. I also remember when some of us joined the Golf team and he played with us. The last time I talked to him was on 10/23/2004 through E-mail and he told me "It is good news that you are doing so well, but then I was confident that you would. Thank you for your good wishes. Coach B." I will always remember you Mr. B and will always love you. The greatest coach ever!!

Mr. Brophy and I both arrived at Bulkeley High in 1966. Being a true 90 lb weakling, I was talked into joining the swim team and met coach Brophy for the first time. There's not enough space here or time for me to tell you how much he meant to me and how often I've thought of him over the years. He nick named me "rat" (as in water rat) and soon I was believing I could do anything I set my mind to. By my senior year I was co-captain of a not very talented swim team, but could not have been more proud. Mr. Brophy gave me that and I'll never forget him for it. Mrs. Brophy.....I remember when you were Ms. Hepner. God has blessed us all and we are far better for having known your husband. My deepest sympathy.
