The Aesthetics of Loss: Remembering Mr. Willy

One summer day in 1998, I met my best friend. He was furry. He didn’t speak English, but we still had the best connection. He just happened to wander out of the woods into my yard. He was the same age as me. Fate.

His name was Mr. Willy, aka the best cat a guy could ask for. A lead actor in my Missing series. A friend til the end.

One winter day in 2010, that all was taken away from me. But it was all for the best, as my best friend had been suffering for quite some time, and there was nothing anyone could do for him anymore. The night of his passing, my parents and I had decided we should put him down the next day. Fate had it that Mr. Willy decided to go on his own that night, as he lay by my side on my bed.

Together until the end. This video is for him.
