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.

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.

So sorry for the loss of MR.MURRAY,my sincere sympathy to you.(matt.5:9) let's us know that "Happy are the peaceable,since they wii be called sons of God."......~

Like an "Intellectual Tide",Dr.Murray lifted all "Boats".These "Boats" now stand on his broad shoulders.

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.
