    I am still feeling sad that he had to give up his life. The cause of his suicide is still questionable. When you look at him on television, he seemed to be a happy guy. I'm thinking that he might got the idea from Kate Spade.

    He wrote about his depression repeatedly. Although it was an initial shock, it makes sense if you look at his body of work.

    When I met him about 10 years ago, he had a fantastically animated stage presence, but one--on-one he seemed weary and kinda sad, frankly.

    I was listening to a podcast with him last night and he seemed to be at peace with death (I've had a good life) but reconciling that with a desire to live for his daughter.
