The writer must have a small pool of friends in the entertainment industry. I am part of the GenX cohort, and not one of my friends has “lost it” in the wake of Luke Perry’s death.
I don’t think any of my friend even know.
Luke Perry passing is a blip on the radar with me. Now Susan passing from cancer hit me in the gut. She started kindergarten with me and we grew up together in our small town. She played softball with us boys, ran track with me in HS, and was all around cool. I graduated HS with 54 kids. I started kindergarten with 48 out of those 54. Susan is missed. Luke Perry? Never knew him.
I felt really sad because he lived right here but I didnt actually know him.
