I did not know Guy Adkins personally. He was an extraordinary actor in Chicago and later New York for many years. I saw his work in such diverse pieces as Hamlet to A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. He was always the best thing in any piece in which I saw him. We had a lot of mutual friends.
He died yesterday of Cancer.
Anything I write would be trite and meaningless today regarding that.
But Guy kept his own blog. I'm including the link here. I spent most of the evening reading it last night. It is a testament to courage, humor and acceptance. In essence, he documented his own death. It is, quite simply, some of the most moving writing I have ever read. This is it.
See you tomorrow.
