The director also detailed their first meeting in 1994:

“I went to Cafe Aroma in Studio City, and he was there. She had it all – beauty, style, grace, wit, intelligence, a great smile, a blinding smile and (can I say this in 2023) legs that claimed to be and were. That night, I wrote in my journal, ‘I think I’m in big trouble.’ We got married on July 11, 1998.”

And he ends the piece by saying:

“They say, ‘Nothing lasts forever,’ but they didn’t know my love for him. 28 years was not nearly long enough. Still, I might be the luckiest SOB who ever lived. Rest well, Bunny. I hope we will be together again.
