I'm just devastated. He was the last of my four most favorites. The night before that came to mind and I thanked God we still had him. I woke to a message saying he was gone. He made my awkward years less awkward and taught me to appreciate words and that words have melodies. His music was my best friend when I didn't have one. And after I did finally meet one, we laughed at how I had a framed 8x10 picture actually taken at a concert on my mantle amongst those of family. I only saw him from a distance in concert, but in a way he was family. Him, Michael Jackson, Marvin Gaye and Teena Marie are the musical family I chose. And now they are all gone. They are gone and I am heartbroken. Without them, I don't think music will ever sound as good to me again.
