Yesterday, my friend David Rakoff died after a long struggle with cancer. He was one of the most beautiful, creative and generous people I have ever had the honor to know. Do yourself a favor and look up some of his writing online, or buy one of his poignant, hilarious books. Listen to some of his appearances on radio (This American Life). Check out the tumblr my friend Rory set up which showcases the many amazing gifts he made and gave to his friends over the years, rorevans.tumblr.com. I am a better person having known him. He was loved by so many, and he will be very, very missed.
