Yes! Attending Reunion

Moved back to SE MA, near Sagamore Cape Cod, from Pennsylvania in 2010, after marriage & family. I am still in private solo medical practice (internal medicine, infectious diseases). I enjoy Wellesley College connections (Well Coll 1978) in addition to visiting my mother in Wellesley Hills. In Plymouth, MA, by the coast, I live near classmates Liz Healy (Dube) 74 and Beth Forte (Nahill) 75 from Wellesley, Sr High Latin classes. Kathy Forte MD is in southern CA, gynecol. My father Joseph E Murray MD died 11/2012, was buried in Edgartown, MA, but a Memorial Stone was dedicated to him and organ transplantation in 2017 in front of the Wellesley Town Hall. Neighbors gathered including Polly Gardner was featured in Wellesley TOWNSMAN. As of 2018, Mother lives still on same home, "Rabbit Rd", WH, where we were raised and big families like ours grew up in the 1960s. I join Mother for Boston Symphony and some Sundays at St Andrew's Church. Centennial Park, Wellesley meadows, was supported by my mother and many others, a gem for dog-walkers, students, and visitors. Most of my relatives including 7 - 17 (when the Costa Ricans visit) of Mother's 18 great grandchildren live in Scituate, MA, where we now gather for family holidays.

School Story:

Having served on our local School Board in PA, I appreciate the great education we received at Wellesley High School...at a fraction of the costs we ask from today's taxpayers. New Wellesley High school, but at least we have the old Stockholm tower. I remember fondly our all night high school parties after each graduation. Stay well, away from CoVid-19!

Thanks for remembering Mom (Bobby Murray) and St Andrew's Episcopal Church, Harriet. I would wear a mask for close conversations cuz even vaccinated folks can get SARS CoV 2 Delta strain infections. Delta in vaccinated folks, however, is not so deadly as the Alpha original CoVid19 disease. The vaccines were made from antigens to SARS CoV 2 Alpha lab virus strains from Wuhan, Sept Oct to December 2019.

My 97 yr old Mother remembers fondly the statue of Robert E Lee on his horse Traveler in Richmond, VA, square, from her vacation days as a child. When it is removed, I hope that it will be available in a museum for the public. Enjoy the rural life! Best, Kathy Murray Leisure, MD, Plymouth MA, by Sagamore Beach.

Richard, If you are in San Jose Heredia area of Costa Rica, go to the Murray Music family roller skating rink by the university. It is run by my nephew Ethan Murray (Joseph Link Murray's kid, Joe my brother was WHS 1969) and our CR family. Enjoy! The Ethan Murrays join us here in Scituate MA and on Chappaquiddick IS in June and July each year. I live in Plymouth MA by Sagamore Beach, at the end of my road, still in medical practice. As a solo practitioner, I cannot risk joining the reunion gang, but I send my VERY BEST WISHES to all! Kathy Murray Leisure, MD, Plymouth MA.

Deb, you have not changed a bit! You were also a talented artist. Why am I not surprised that you had such fabulous musical experiences, sharing the Lord with your community? I sing with the Pilgrim Festival Chorus of Plymouth, MA, enjoyed performing Mozart REQUIEM with full orchestra in spring, 2019, at the Scituate Performance Center and at St Bonaventure mega-church in Plymouth, MA (where I sing in church choir, also). Our friend Debbie Fulham is still in Carlisle, PA. After my 2 children were grown and gone, I left Hershey, PA, to return to MA, Murray kin, and ailing parents in 2010. I love being near Sagamore Beach at the end of my development. I biked to Scusset Beach, the Sagamore Bridge, and the Cape Cod Canal. The Spillmans live on the Cape. Be well! Yours, Kathy Murray (Leisure).

Traveling through Wellesley? Check out the memorial stone to Joseph E Murray MD, dedicated to organ transplantation, aside the top of the driveway in front of the elegant red brick WELLESLEY TOWN HALL, across from the uptown Wellesley Public Library. Dedicated thanks to Jack Morgan and Wellesley selectmen, among others, in late 2017. Details in Wellesley Townsman.

Happy Birthday, Jeff! 1/26/2016, have a great day w family. Tv and media stuff aside, can you still play two sets of tennis? My last visit to NY was to the US Open qualilfying matches (Aug 2015), when I stayed with the mother of my son in law (Celso Miguel Moreira) in Jackson Heights. I drove my mother Virginia Link Murray, also widowed, still in Wellesley, to the Boston Metropolitan Opera Auditions last Sunday, at the NE Conservatory. After raising my family in PA, like the Spilmans who moved to Sandwich, MA, it is nice to be back in the Cape area near family and old friends...and summer ocean swims. Liz Healy (Dube) works at the Plymouth Library, truly a delightful lady still gracious and beautiful. Elizabeth (Beth) Forte Nahill works w her husband's medical practice in the same building as my medical office. Our Latin classmate Kathy Forte MD went to CA practices Ob Gyn. Best wishes in the Big Apple! Kathy Murray Leisure, MD, Plymouth, MA.
