It seems like everyone is commenting on his death and I feel uncomfortable in my own skin thinking about him and his untimely passing. I have the image of the time I saw him burned into my mind: Last September 11th, my plane landed in New York City very early in the morning. Not able to check into my hotel, I was wandering through lower Manhattan when I got caught in a terrible rainstorm. Huddled under a store awning with many other pedestrians, I stood next to a beautiful model chatting on her cell phone. Little did I know that she had been chatting with Heath, who nonchalantly walked up and took her inside. Right then, a group of teens swarmed him and I remember turning around and watching him graciously pausing for a few autographs and snapshots. Even when he was going incognito in a black coat, jeans, dark sunglasses and a messy ponytail, his presence was still instantly felt. That’s the way I’ll remember him.
