The other day I was driving, thinking about you, and tears began to stream down my face. So I turned the radio on, and, much to my surprise, the Beastie Boys’ “Fight for Your Right (To Party)” came on. I laughed because I knew at that moment you were there, trying to bring a smile to my face — as you did for everyone in your life.
When we spoke not long after your ALS diagnosis, it was one of the worst days of my life — next to the day I found out you had died. I’ve never felt my heart sink the way it did when you told me you had ALS. We talked, we cried and we laughed. You faced ALS like everything else in your life, with all the strength you could. I will always be in awe of the passion with which you approached life.
