John Mayer: "My brother Bob was a force of nature; a big tall love monster who would hug me and rest his head on my shoulder. His love for those around him was always accounted for. He was deep and wide and vast, and he would also probably make a joke about me saying ‘deep and wide.' The man had range. I've met many people in my life, but when Bob crossed my path, I just held onto him, and I wasn't letting go. I just knew he was the realest thing. I would like you to know that the man you hope was as lovely as you think was way beyond what you can ever imagine. He was impossibly kind. And generous. And loving. And I have more to say so please let me do like one more of these, okay? It's just the way it's gonna be."
