  1. It’s always sad when people move on, it can be a strange thing feeling you miss someone you don’t know but you knew their work. I don’t profess to have created work that anyone would miss me through.
    When the time comes, It could be possible someone might feel I was one that got away ( I can live in, or rather die in hope.)
    My consolation is the work I have done as an actor is on film and probably will be until the end of mankind.
    I admire all Artists that have proven immortal, through their great imaginations, creations and work.
    Well done to them all.

    They will be missed but they won’t be forgotten.

  2. I truly hope that when my spirit leaves this body, it will leave behind art that is so loving, profound and moving, that it will bring about an altered state of consciousness to the millions that will come to view it. If it can instill positive thoughts, innovative discoveries and most of all, the betterment of the human race, my mission here will put me a step closer to nirvana.
