It was my pleasure to meet Murnane several years ago, at an ARCE exposition in Los Angeles. I was very nervous, trying to get up enough nerve to speak to such a well-known Egyptologist. He couldn't have been more gracious, or go out of his way to put me at ease. We spent only several minutes speaking--I forget now what we talked of--but I was really impressed with what a like-able person he was.
I remember when I heard of his death. Wasn't it right after he had had some surgery? I was so shocked and upset at the news! We certainly lost a great scholar and a dedicated Egyptologist with his passing. I'm glad to see something such as this shows that he was highly thought of by those in his profession as well.
