‘If I should die,’ said I to myself, ‘I have left no immortal work behind me - nothing to make my friends proud of my memory - but I have lov’d the principle of beauty in all things, and if I had had time I would have made myself remember’d.’ - John Keats
“Like so many Americans, she was trying to construct a life that made sense from things she found in gift shops.” - Kurt Vonnegut

I knew Garner was ill because of my work for a while now, so every time my mother brought him up (which was almost once a week because she’s been in love with him since she was 13 years old and saw him in The Americanization of Emily), I would tell her he was not doing well and was probably going to die soon, so that when he did the blow wouldn’t be as tough. The first thing I did this morning was listen to a voicemail from my mom where she was crying about how much she loved him and thanking me for preparing her so that it wasn’t as shocking as it would have been (like, say, when I woke up to the new of Liz Taylor’s death and cried for four hours straight). What a great man. He will be missed.
