The Heartbreaking Loss of Prince

I remember the exact moment I fell in love with Prince. I was in a theater watching Purple Rain, and I have a vivid memory of knowing in my soul that I loved him. He was magical and the world is darker after the loss of this remarkable man. It is impossible to pick a favorite song because Prince is more than just one song. Whether songs he wrote for himself, or ones he wrote for others, his talent was prolific and I am heartbroken.

To me, Price was one of the sexiest men I have ever seen. Even in eyeliner and high heels, this man was masculine. He made my heart flutter. He has been on my “Sleep with a Celebrity” list from before I was even having sex. He was a sexy, bold, inspiring, and moving genius. I started crying when I heard he passed away and shouted out no. I am still unable to comprehend that this man is gone, and frankly feel confused by his passing.

My entire adult life has been touched by Prince. There are moments of great importance to me that are entwined with his music. I could tell you stories from my life with his music as the backdrop for every single one. I will love Prince for the rest of my life. He matters to me. I send my heartfelt condolences to his friends and family, and I join in the grief of his millions of fans. I am sad he is gone, thankful he was here, and keeping the faith.
