If I pass on before you, remember: our movie was a rollicking musical all along. So no room for tears. We gave everyone a leading role and a large percentage of the happiness. It took place during the 1950’s, so everyone fell in love. It was summertime with rhubarb and blueberry pies cooling at the window in every scene, waiting for the picnic. Even the audience was in Technicolor. So if I must leave before the credits roll, I hope you’ll always remember: the two parts of your most loyal friend and biggest fan were each played by me, the sibling who admired you most was my role, and the one lead who would have been lost without you? Yeah, me.
