I lived across the street from Doran when we were children. We had a lot of fun together.

We exchanged e-mails a couple of years ago. May he rest in

Dance could never have been the same with out you. Someday when I go to NYC I’ll think of you and go all the places you told me to. Thank you for being wonderful. We love you!
