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.
August 21, 2013
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.

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.

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.
