“I will miss my friend Lisa. Her death, like her son’s death, or her father’s, doesn’t seem real. Lisa loved her family, all her children. My feelings are with them. Her son’s death it was shocking, tragic and devastating. It was something that, at some point, you didn’t want to talk about, but it was an effort to show that you cared about her and that you were thinking about them. She appreciated that. I wanted her to be happy, if only feel good about things, at least as possible for someone in a situation like hers. Seeing the closeness of their relationship, that reality didn’t ring true, at least not without the passage of time. No one knows what’s after life, but I like to think they’re together. She and Ben, with her dad, his grandfather. I think, somehow, they’re happy together.”
