Au Revoir mon ami…

So the PC screen is a little blurry as I write this through a vale of tears, but it’s probably a good time to thank you for a great lunch before you leave.  Having a nice meal with you and Sean is something I will never take for granted and this afternoon was no exception.  I sat across from you in wonderment as you regaled me with your story of Saturday night in Hollywood at the Chateau Marmont and crashing a celebrity party…this only happens in the movies you know?  Then again, as you so wisely said on twitter, “true life, my life was just a movie”, indeed it was.  You lived a life filled with profound sadness and pain interrupted by moments sublime as you sought to brighten every room you entered.  Your infectious smile and positive attitude couldn’t hide the pain I saw but I knew someday triumph would be yours.  Today is that day Maddy.  Pride is a dime-store word to describe my feelings for you.  Words truly fail me.  You are at once ethereal and real…down-to-earth and destined for the stars.  I am so glad I’m you’re Dad.  And I thank you for the journey so far.

Have fun!  I love you…
