I will be very brief. He was one of us. In 1997 he disclosed his bouts with depression. As much as anything else, his going public brought out into the open a topic that had been considered taboo. He was a hero, one who lived by his ideal to comfort the afflicted and to afflict the comforted. He was a role model, working into his late eighties, going-going-going. And he remains a legend, long to be remembered.
