This week we lost an incredible human being. I have known and worked with extremely talented and generous man for a few decades now. He was more than a friend. He was a brother. I have so many fond memories that are flooding through me at an alarming rate right now. The time the 7 dwarfs all met before going to set for breakfast at Sneezy's house. The time he took care of me in England when I was releases to his care (and Faustino's) from the hospital. The hi-jinx on set. The laughter between takes. The cold beers at whatever "hovel" the boys were all drinking at that afternoon. There is a lot for me to process right now. I thank everyone for the kind words of our dear friend. I am sure many of us will speak more once this incredible shock transitions into the reality that our dear brother is gone.
