Mark Linkous. I never knew you personally, but the fact that you are now gone hurts like hell. It hurts so much that I’m almost ashamed to admit that a death of a musician can have such a huge impact on me. It’s because our relationship was always so freakin personal. Your songs and your whispering voice carried me through lonely nights and gave me comfort when I needed it the most. You reached the darkest corner of my heart and made it brighter by injecting a truckload of beauty straight to the core. You took care of me without even knowing it. That’s why our completely one-sided love affair was so extremely personal on my part. Thank you for everything.
