Death is grim 

Suicide sucks 

We have to go on 

As if we wore the tux 

Anthony led me through deep times of doubt 

But I always lit the burner and brought the good flavor out  


A lot of my friends knew Anthony Bourdain. I admire people like him, who was a friend to all. He often wasn’t just talking about food, but rather talking about human moods and loss.
