‘He’s still very reliable, but he just loves community and [having] people end. He [hosted] friendly game of poker and he just loves to cook and the people around him. We usually have traffic jams on Friday nights – what it was like in our 20s. We are older now, but [we] like that kind of vibration’.

‘I’m not nostalgic. I have learned to value my past as much as anyone else does. I always think about today and tomorrow,” he said.

‘Ione, once in a while, he’ll post pictures from Say Anything… It’s not like he really needs it, but he does it because it makes people feel good’.
