    In Memoriam

    Oh captain, my captain!

    Today we weep for the man that made us all laugh and smile. Your passing has left such a big hole in my heart and I feel as if my childhood has floated away with your spirit. You and your unparralelled talent meant so much more to me then just a laugh. I remember when I was just a little girl, watching Mrs. Doubtfire on repeat, pretending you where my father and Alladin, taking me away from all that tormented me during the times where I had no body. Your infectious laugh, heartwarming smile and effortless, limitless talent helped me get through an extremely lonely and depressing childhood. Whenever I felt sorrow or remembered the empty, lonely feeling of depression I would turn to your wisdom and humor…..I have a history of alcohol abuse and depression in my family and I am so pained to see that the world has lost you to the same affliction that you helped me be strong enough to keep under control. You unintentionally helped raise so many of us. If only you could have physically felt all the love and happiness you brought to this world. If only we where able to repay you the favor that you had so graciously bestowed upon us. You influenced me in so many ways and I owe my quick thinking witty humor and passion to excel in all areas of my field to you. It is because of you I was able to grow up a loving adult yet still stay a child at heart, keeping my spark of madness. You made fantasies into realities and and realities into fantasies, shaping a whole generation as you went and your impact was so strong on this earth that I don't think you could EVER be forgotten.
