that's what I was thinking... thats a lot of flowers and tributes... and thats just in Manhattan.

I wonder if there would be that much heart in those tributes there if he'd been the typical movie star and not such an intersting introverted soul?

Which is the ennisjack memorial Mel?

John, thank you for these updated photos.  Yes indeed, I'm definitely crying now.  I would be a complete mess if I was there in person, I just know it.  But, I would like to go there someday.   Maybe next time I'm in NYC I'll make a point of going there.  Even if it's long after the flowers and memorials are taken away.

I wonder what will happen with all the cards, letters and things that are non-perishable.  I wonder who's collecting them.

Okay, the tears started when I saw Meryl's photo next to the memorial.  Then it got progressively more difficult to hold them back as I came to this point in the thread.  Such love represented by you all.  Thank you for being there Meryl, John, and everyone for helping us see the out pouring of affection.

I wish to thank you for the photos. I'm right now in the beautiful town of Kiruna in the very north of Sweden, north of the Polar Circle. And yet I'm in New York, thanks to your photos......

I also wish to thank Smellykellyjay - hope I got the nick right! - for his beautiful posting. I have read it several times, so beautiful and well written. It felt like I walked with him.....

I'm so far away but thanks to you I'm in the middle of it all - almost.....
