Dear Karen, I was sorry to hear of Jim's passing. He was one of the first persons to befriend me when I moved to Winchester in 1972 to take a job at the hospital. I fondly remember the many nights we played poker and at your house, and met you and Greg who were dating at the time. Jim and your mom, Sara, made my transition to Winchester easer. He was a good man. My prayers are with you.

Karen, Tim and Grant please accept my deepest condolences on the passing of your father. I will forever remember his stern nature, but also the twinkle in his eye when he was sharing a good story over a cold beverage. Tim and my spring break trip with him and some of his friends has always been a time that I remember and reflect fondly on. Your family in in my prayers during this difficult time.

Karen, Greg, & all of Jim’s family - we are so sorry to hear of Murphy’s passing. In all the years I worked across the hall from him at Winchester Memorial I don’t think I ever called him anything but Murphy. He was a special person & I am blessed to have had the opportunity to know him. Prayers for all of you!
