A Testament to Courage, Humor and Acceptance...

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.
