In Memory

@>->-- Dennis Murphy, Ph.D --<-<@

Our friend Dennis was a computer science instructor at the University of Houston/Clear Lake. He had suffered small strokes a year or so ago, which hampered his ability to teach, and he had been admitted into the hospital over the past weekend. He was found cyanotic and not breathing this morning when the nurse came by to do her usual rounds. They couldn't resuscitate him. Dennis was 63.

Dennis was a neat guy. He told just about the stupidest jokes I've ever heard, but he could play and compose music for the recorder, and he performed with his church's choir down in Clear Lake until the stroke make him no longer able to do that. He loved good cinema and classical and baroque music.

His funeral will be held in Boston. I'll miss him. We tried to adopt him into our gaming group, but tabletop RP bored him. Still, we enjoyed seeing him at Thanksgiving and Christmas at our DM Karina's house.

Current Mood: sadsad
Current Music: Pachelbel's Canon in D

My thoughts are with you. Losing someone you care about is always sad. I hope you will be able to go to the funeral or find your own way to say goodbye. I have found that that helps with the mourning process.

We definitely won't be able to attend the funeral, but either our gaming group will do something, or we'll attend something if his choir organizes one.

Thanks for your wishes. Mainly, I think, please pary for his family. he was a bachelor, so I mean his family up in Massachusetts.




I am so sorry to hear about your friend. I hope you have a recording of his music. He sounds like an interesting and talented man.


Re: Dennis

he was! I don't have a recording, but Karina might. I'll ask her. I'm betting anything that was his will be disposed of by his family.



How sad. He sounds like he was an interesting friend. My condolences.

My thoughts are with you also.

I'm sorry to hear that. *hugs* At least you have a lot of good memories of him.

Hey, thank you! And you're right--definitely a lot of good memories. :)
