In Loving Memory

I learned yesterday that an extremely talented actor friend passed away.


Learned today how Eric Gelman died. It's sick and wrong and horrible and tragic. I pray I will remember his humor and grace, not the mugging and stabbing that took his life Sunday.

I'm so grateful that I got to know Eric (we met two years ago when his good friends (the Harley Crew) recommended him for a film I was casting--and I continued to bring him in to audition for pretty much every film I cast after that) and I send my prayers and love to his family and friends, as they will be holding a memorial for him back in Florida tomorrow.

Rest in peace, dear Eric. I will never forget your dancing elbows, silly tongue shapes, and instant-red-face. You had the best special skills!!

I'm not giving an entry to the man that killed Eric, but I'm going to post these links in the comments section, so that others may be able to help find the killer and bring him to justice.

That is so completely disturbing and heartbreaking. My empathy and my sympathy for him and his family is just...overWHELMING me right now.

I really, really hope that they find the bastard who stabbed him. And I hope that through justice, peace can come to pass for Eric's family.
