Oh Lissa... you have been on my mind and I just read your post from October and talk about inappropriate crying....I'm either feeling your psychically or who knows - I have brain issues left over from the brain surgery that almost took my life. I have been crying a lot, thinking about you, about friends, at Hamilton ... I am having trouble processing this terrible news. You are such a life force and for me, you've always lived your life unapologetically as happily and busily as you wanted. We've known each other since 7th grade... 54 years! I know you in a way many others don't because we grew up together ... I knew your family, your parents, your grandma Negrin who gave us uzo after we rode our bikes there... because of your mom, I love those stuffed Greek tomatoes... I remember you hanging over the balcony at the movie theatre near the Plaza as we watched Romeo and Juliet ... we auditioned for PA together... I hung out with you and your friends and although I know you don't remember much of it or me as part of that time in your life, I have never forgotten how much of a part of my life you are... how much Paula was ... my heart is breaking ... I just lost 2 of my close friends and now you are suffering with ALS... I will do ask you ask and write something for your website ... I will let some people that I know know about you ... I think we all have these terrible illnesses and horrible things happen to us but in the midst of them we find the good - the people who love us, who care, who are there by our side ... through the terrible illness I have I have learned to look at the silver lining where I can find it ... your have your Bill and Smokey and your great group of supportive friends ... I have been concerned about you since you told me you had chronic leukemia years ago ... but you are one strong fucking woman ... I love you, my friend, my heart, my soul, and I'm sorry you have to live with this thief ALS ... I just watched the documentary on Selma Blair, the actress diagnosed with MS called Introducing Selma Blair .... I took inspiration and strength from her ... I take it from you.... if you can, watch the Beatles Get Back documentary ... I promise you'll cry but it won't be inappropriately ... I love you , my friend
