Well you know, everybody has a different memory because they have a different relationship. Whether it’s from television or individually. I think that to me, personally, I have a lot of love for him – I have my own memories. The beautiful thing is, he had a very, very, huge incredible soul and it just went on forever. His love & his generosity is why he had a church full of women AND men crying. It was a great loss – not because of his acting – I mean he was a great actor of course – but really because he was a generous and beautiful entity & I’ve known him since 1992 & I still kind of can’t comprehend it.

I think it’s a process. I think at first you’re hit with it and you can’t believe it & then you slowly process it. Sometimes for people it takes Awhile to process – you turn around & your like ‘oh my god is he not here anymore?’ Everybody’s processing it in their own way – nobody’s happy about it & it’s not easy for anyone.
