All I can say is:  I love you all.


I'll second that!

So tragic.  A young father and talented actor with so much ahead of him.  Unbelievable.

Jenny (Newyearsday) has no internet connection, but she wishes a big, big hug to all of you.


Awful.
 :P

Thanks, John (and Jenny).  And I wish the same to you both and to everyone else here.

I just sat in front of the TV watching a bit about it on HLN and saying out loud "I can't fucking believe this."  Then they got going on in graphic detail about how he was found, what he looked like, etc.  And I said "You BASTARDS."  I can't/won't watch it anymore.  I put on the Evening News on one of the networks, and at least they did a tasteful job of talking about his accomplishments and left it at that.

What have we become that we have to have these media circuses when something like this happens?  Hell, I thought it was horrible when they did it to Anna Nicole Smith.  But this is insufferable.

Jesus.  Whatever happened to allowing someone some dignity, if at no other time, at least in death?  Cretins.

(I think I'm going at rapid-fire speed into the Anger phase.  And I think I'm gonna be here for a while.)

Rest in peace, Heath.  You were beautiful.  And what you gave us all will live in our hearts forever.
No more beans!

Oh gosh, I just started thinking, I don't live all that far away from where Heath lived actually, in the city and Brooklyn.

I was always thinking someday I would see him walking around somewhere in the city, and I would have a great story to tell everyone here.

I can't believe now that it will never happen.

I can't believe that it is all real.

I've been jettisoned back two years to the way I was when I first say Brokeback Mountain. Here I am again, two years later, again sitting at work, in front of my PC, with tears streaming down my face. I need to get home. I'm not coping with this at all. Next Saturday, January 26, is my BbM second anniversary.

I'll never forget you, Heath. Your Ennis changed my life.

It's incredible to me that Heath died on the actual Full Moon.

I'm not coping with this either Kerry!

{{{KERRY}}}

It's weird. I've never met Heath in person and yet I feel as if I've known him my entire life, and I've just lost a very close friend.  :'(  :'(  :'(  :'(

I don't know how to work through this right now. I don't know how to cope. And I feel as pissed as hell about it, and I feel like I'm going to throw up.

Please have a safe drive home Kerry. We'll be here for you buddy!  :-*

You are right Amanda and this was the day that our actual Full Moon chat would have happened. Cameron was saying that she often thought she might see Heath walking around in New York City. You don't know how many times I thought about that. When the gray line sightseeing bus went into Brooklyn I remember thinking this is where Heath lives.
