"...Good night, sweet prince,
And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest!"

I shall always remember you this way, sweet Prince.

I'll remember a time when a much younger version of myself fell head over heels in love with a ruggedly handsome Celtic Prince, destined to lead his people.  I would grow to admire you as you took on fun roles like A Knights Tale and 10 Things I Hate about You and then love you even more as Ennis Del Mar and eventually, the Joker.  It wasn't easy to try to sway my allegiance to Jack Nicholson, but you could have pulled it off.

I didn't know you.  Maybe its inappropriate for me to mourn.  Yet, you were young and full of life and should have had many more years on this earth.  I think that is worth mourning that someone only 2 years my senior left this earth so young for any reason.  I choose to remember you this way. 

"I know your life on earth was troubled
And only you could know the pain
You weren't afraid to face the devil
You were no stranger to the rain

Go rest high on that mountain
Son, you work on earth is done
Go to heaven a shoutin'
Love for the Father and Son"
~Vince Gill: Go rest High on That Mountain
