“So many feelings hearing that you are gone. This is a first for me. When an ex boyfriend dies. Feels odd posting anything on social media. You weren’t even on this stuff. I have so many photos I have taken of you, but this is one of the sweetest and reminds me of how much you loved @atlantabean. It’s from 1998.
“Reading all the tributes to you, people sharing how kind you were, how talented and yes incredibly handsome. I think you would like most, but you would not like that the loudest take away was that you were in an Levi’s ad and worked with Madonna.
“So, I’m going to make sure we don’t forget that any notoriety you gained, was something you never embraced. It almost embarrassed you.
“My experience of you, and the years we were together was that you spent much of your time making art, cooking,traveling, and chanting. Your practice was the most important thing in your life, and I know that your last breath would’ve been Nam-myoho-renge-kyo. Hope you are with Barry and your Mum.”
