For over 20yrs, not once did I see you lose your cool, a wise man, a humble man, kind hearted…a true definition of a good friend.
I will definitely miss those very early hours of the day that I will call you and share my crazy ideas with you, while taking notes as you throw in your genius touch.
You were selfless, discipline and professional, unarguably one of the best writers I’ve seen, a brilliant actor, musician and even though you never did it…you were one of the best comedians I’ve ever seen.
One of the most creative humans I’ve ever met, extremely intelligent, with so much love to give.
We lost a good man today, we lost a great man.
You were the best of us all and I will miss you so much.
I love you Salty Salty. @soundsultan
