So, so, so sad...

Only met Rich on that weekend in SF at the Castro and Rodeo event and thought to myself - "what a nice guy"...

Heartfelt sympathy to his family and loved ones...such a tragedy to leave us at such a young age, but I am sure he went with no regrets...

I had hoped he could have made it to the Boston event...

Rest his soul and may light perpetual shine upon him...
...the imagined power of Brokeback Mountain...

At the risk of putting on too much air, this is the only thing I can come up with at the moment that summs up this day:

I can't watch the video, but I know exactly the part you are talking about. I've seen that movie dozens of times. It is such a beautiful and sad poem. I think it sums up exactly how we all feel right now. :(

At 6:06 pm EST I was walking in Williamsburg (well, you know where) with two friends. I was telling them all about Rich, and his life, and BBM. They were more than interested, they were moved, and both said they were so sorry.

Terrible sadness. My condolences to his daughter, partner, mother, and many, many friends.
