My hero. My father. Murray Maye. The best man I've ever known. We took this picture a few years back while scouting for SELMA near his birthplace in Lowndes County, Alabama. It was a good day. We had many, many, many good days together. Blessings all. He journeyed onto the next realm this week. Out of the blue, he is no longer here. And yet, he remains. I'll see him again when it's my time. Until then, watch over me, Pops.
Oprah responded to one of Ava’s tweets, sharing her honor for being able to speak his graces at his “going home” celebration.
We’re saddened by this news and have Ava and family in our prayers.
