  1. To a great brother who built an awesome surfboard from scratch in 1965! I was there. This is not the end. You are going to a much better place, a new beginning where mom and dad already are. We will miss you bro.

  2. Addison and I were very different people, but we never allowed our differences to interfere with our friendship. We shared an innate curiosity about life, along with an ability to laugh at it, which I believe was our most important asset. At one point, Addison and I lived in the same curious apartment complex in Silver Lake, which is where I met him. He took me to the Beverly Hills gun club to refine my shooting skills, I turned him on to the world of bizarre cinema. Around 1987, a functioning bar was built in one of my bedrooms, to be used as a film set, and later as the site of many Halloween parties. I’ll always treasure the photo I have of Addison elegantly costumed as a Chinese merchant. The gap between his front teeth sold the whole thing. For me, that was Addison- eternally bent on enjoying life. I think is was Walt Whitman who once noted (I’m paraphrasing,) “It is the great secret of the world that nothing ever dies, but only changes form.” Whitman was speaking of us all; of our spirit energy, which only changes form when we leave the planet. One thing I’m certain of: Addison is somewhere enjoying the adventure Thank you, old friend, for sharing that with the world. .
