Will died. Over 5 years later and still I miss him. Everyday.
Will loved to laugh. One of his greatest joys in life was bringing laughter to friends & family. And especially me. Will loved movies and music. One of his all time favorite movies was "Sordid Lives" by Delferd Shores. Mine too. Tag line "A black comedy about white trash" Will would always say that he was raised trash and had to stay trash or jump out of the can. He jumped. I caught him.
The year was 1996 and for the next ten years we lived, loved, fought, worked, and laughed together.
The very day that Will moved into my home I received in the mail Patti Labelle's "Live-One Night Only" DVD. We both adored Patti and as soon as we got settled in we began watching. This would be the first of many many many viewings of this! Our favorite song on the DVD was
"If you love me (Hymne a L'amour)"
Stories from these ten years need to and will be told. For now let's jump to the end.
Will died on July 23,2006.
I moved to LA. One night soon after my arrival I looked up into the dark sky and asked Will for a sign that he was ok. Just then a shooting star filled the sky and as I watched I began to weep. Will had answered.
