Godspeed Spalding...

A fan of yours' since I first watch your film with my then girlfriend, Jenifer, in 1989. May your soul and spirit soar and rest in peace for the rest of time.

"Leaping leeming":That's the end of Spalding and I. Wish I knew you enough Mr. Gray. I told stories to get this day off. You were my friend. No Mother to mourn.But I cry unexpectantly. I've been here before. There's nothing to do but cry just now. Extra ordinary again. You have reached the finish line with no explination.

such a sad event in history . your words will live on . i will read and re read everything you have ever written . thank you for changing my thoughts on things .

I became entranced with Spalding Gray after seeing Monster in a Box in a movie Theater in Minneapolis. Then came the gift book of Impossible Vacation which my boyfriend and I would take turns reading to eachother until we were laughing so hard we were spitting.
That was 1992. Then, living in Kansas City, I had to take a vacation and experiencing the same agnst and confusion as Spalding, I came across this Sante Fe booklet and here he was going to be in Sante Fe, so off I go, in 1998...

Thank you Mr Gray , I feel like I have lost a family member, I will remember the stories that you shared with me and I will share your stories with my son so that he will know what a truly great life you lived . You made a difference with your life and you will not be forgotten . Thank you and god bless you .

Sometimes we lose the best and brightest much too soon. Life is a difficult journey and Spaulding felt the pain. We understand the world better through his eyes.

I was a fan and am saddened that you are gone. I feel for your family and hope they find solace and peace.

His images with Burmese costumes in "Beyond Rangoon" are still living. Rest in peace, Mr. Gray.
