This is the hardest thing I’ve ever had to share on social media. I’m so incredibly heartbroken by the sudden loss of my best friend and spiritual brother, William Rivers Pitt. Taken from us far too soon, Will was a force of nature in every way. Passionate, articulate, brilliant, loyal, funny… I can’t even sum him up with mere words which is truly ironic because he wielded the English language like a fencer uses a blade.

To say that I’ll miss Will is so short of the mark that it’s completely inadequate. For 35+ years he was my confidante, my partner-in-crime, my sounding board and one of my biggest supporters in life. I can only hope that he felt the same way about me. I’m pretty sure he did.

Over the past 24 hours since I learned of his passing, the memories have come tumbling out of my head of all of the incredible experiences we shared, through fun times (and there were so many) and sadness (few, but always bound us closer together), I just can’t imagine a world without his great big boisterous laugh, his bear hugs and simply hearing him say “I love you, brother” at the end of every conversation.

Will was a generous soul who would do anything for the ones he cared about. He was a fierce defender of the ideals that he held so dear and dedicated his life to fighting the good fight, often times on behalf of people who couldn’t fight for themselves.

I’m absolutely gutted right now for his mother Jane (who is still like a second Mom to me) and his daughter Lola who was unequivocally the absolute shining joy of his life. I’m hurting for everyone who knew and loved Will, truly one of the most unique and incredible people I will ever know. I’m sad for my friend. The world glows a bit dimmer today without him. RIP Will. I love you, brother.
