Dear Sam,

We heard the heartbreaking news from Rena that Murray lost his battle with cancer. We are so very sad. Our hearts go out to you, Sophie, and Zach at this very difficult time.

Ever since we received Rena’s message, I've been thinking of Murray and remembering my interactions with him, especially the conversation I had with him standing next to the Koi garden café on our last day at WAB. I was saying how difficult it was to leave as the rest of the world wasn’t like WAB. He said, "Well, you'll just have to take the WAB spirit with you." What a gift he had to counsel and support others! We will always remember him, his many kindnesses, his good humor, and his gentle spirit.

I can’t imagine, Sam, your pain at losing your life partner. I hope you're comforted by knowing that we are keeping you close in spirit and keeping Murray close in spirit with this beautiful photograph Jim took of him in March 2011.

Much love
