Such terrible news and yet Leonard will always be with us. He'll be speaking to us sweetly from a window in the Tower of Song...RIP my friend, and thank you for everything.

Thank you Leonard for all the music that keeps me company as I travel through life. Even though you are now gone from this earthly world you will still be with me in song and word.
To your family and friends my sincere condolences on your loss of this wonderful man.

I was travelling in Kyoto yesterday morning when my friend told me there was a very bad news. I wasn't prepared for this one. It's so surprising and shocking, made me burst to cry. And I think it's the first time for me feeling a deep grief.
Thank you for once being here with us, Mr. Cohen. I'm so grateful for seeing you in your glorious late years at the concerts. Your music, your letters have touched my soul so deeply that there is no others ever transcended. I know your works will live on and your spirit will be with us for a long long time.
Thank you and bid you farewell, I'll still be hearing you from the tower of song.
My sincere condolence to Mr. Cohen's family and friends. Jarkko, thanks for the forum that we are able to gather together at such moment.

Leonard has been my spiritual guide since I was 17. I am now 67. My heart goes out to his family. I honestly never thought that he was mortal and I can' t believe he is gone.
Love,
Lynne, (Canada)

Few weeks ago, as I turned on the radio in my car, I heard his song playing and my blood chilled and rushed to my head... I had to pull over and frantically search the news online... only to find out seconds later that it was a re-run of his USA's NPR / Terry Gross / Fresh Air's interview, from 2006 I think.

I had lived through this news. So now, when it came, it somehow did not feel that abrupt and... painful... until it started to settle...

I am so thankful that he gave us what our own words and minds could not, but badly needed, still badly need.

Лека ти пръст, Леонард, почивай в мир!

p.s.
I had tickets for his last New York concert. Bought them some 10 months in advance, but ended up missing the show because of reasons outside of my control. Ever since then, I have been sure that there will be another tour. I was even ready to travel to any destination in the world, to see him live...

Following the "car" episode I - desperately, naively, felt that I have to force a concert. The ludicrous idea became to materialize, when a friend help me talk it trough and kinda said "why not". The plan was to crowd-fund the rental of a couple of nights of the LA concert hall under a fake act, then round up the musicians from his last tour and albums. All this swiftly and in secrecy from him until as late as possible. So that EVERYTHING would be setup for him to just come, sit in a chair, sing a few songs and go back home.

Researching for contacts, I started seeing all the news reports of his health... his son's account of how the album was recorded, his own words about what was coming... I felt a little ashamed of my selfishness, but then I thought how right it would feel, if such an event happens as a tribute... even without him, if all the people from both sides of the curtain, who loved and appreciated his work got together to celebrate and say one last thank you!

Today I hope that someone does organize something like this. It will be my, and I think many others' closure. I so much hope for something like this to happen
