Death is never an easy situation to deal with but just like Jesus referred to his good friend Lazarus as being "asleep" in death. That's the viewpoint that we need to have and we will be able to cope with not only the loss of Mr. Murray, but the loss and grief that we experience when we loose our loved ones.
EDDIE L RUTH SR. MY CONDOLENCE TO HIS FAMILY.
Several years ago I had the honor of interviewing Mr. Murray at his home. In the midst of our talk he glanced up and pointed across the room at a massive bookshelf lining one wall. "Get that book for me," he said, pointing. Mystified, I walked over and, following his directions, got the book in question and walked back. "Go to page" something, he said. When I got there, he began reciting the words I was reading. He recited the entire page. Mr. Murray later allowed me to meet him at the Strand Bookstore, where he told me several books I must read, including Andre Malraux's "Man's Fate," one of the most moving and evocative books I have ever digested. Meeting and spending even that little time with Mr. Murray - even now I can't imagine calling him anything else - was a seminal moment in my development as a writer and a human being. Our world is smaller with him gone.
I am deeply sorry to here about the loss of your loved one. Fortunately though bible speaks about a time when there will be no more pain or suffering.
Grief can be so hard, but our special memories help us cope. Remembering you and your loved one today and always.
Albert Murray was a great American with a creatively academic view of the diverse cultures of this country and a profound appreciation for jazz. I never met him, but I will miss him.
May you be in The Book Of Life.
May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.
It was truly appreciated that Mr. Murray stood his ground for what HE thought was right and not just what the majority thought. It takes courage and strength to hold to what you feel is true and right. May the generations now and yet to come remember his legacy. The hope held out to see such men again is truly a joy. I look forward to meeting and conversing with him when he is resurrected to life on earth again.
Rest In Peace...
My mother grew up with Mr. Murray in Plateau, AL and had several of his books.
My sympathies to the family. May God comfort you in your time of loss.
Mr. Murray left a mark in history that I hope African American children around the world will be educated about. Thank you Sir.
