Eddie Money passed away two years ago this week—on September 13th, 2019.His wife Laurie marked the anniversary with a humorous letter to the late rocker.
Here are some highlights:
- "I miss hearing you tell your same old goofy jokes to everyone you meet over and again."
- "I miss cleaning up (and complaining about it!) for hours after you cooked your peanut butter chicken stew."
- "I miss your constant texts from across the house, and you getting mad if I didn’t respond within seconds."
- "I miss picking up Taco Bell for date night at home, with you saying 'I’ll turn off Sports Center and let you watch what you want on TV!', etc."
- "I miss buying you new stage clothes and having you tell me that I spend way too much money since, as you constantly reminded me, 'I ain’t Billy Joel!!'"
- "I even miss arguing with you in the car about which freeway I take or where I park or how late we’re going to be to the airport. Our life was nothing if not chaotic, but that’s how we liked it and that’s how we rolled."
- "I miss our family movie nights with you talking so loudly with your very recognizable New York voice during the quiet scenes in the theater and asking us why we’re all shushing you."
Laurie also wrote, "If love could’ve saved you, you would’ve lived forever, like you will now thru all of us and thru your music...
She added, "You’d also have been thrilled, yet humbled to see how your music peers have paid homage to you as a person and for your contributions to the music world. I think it spoke volumes about what a nice person you were as well as a talented artist when your passing had such a deep impact among your fellow artists.”
Finally, Laurie said, "Now that you’ve been gone for two years, I can’t say that I miss you any less nor do I love you any less. Like you said so many times to me, 'I’ve never loved anyone as much as I love you, and I never will,' to that I say 'Ditto.'
"We all miss you so much Eddie. See you on the other side."
Eddie died at age 70 after battling cancer and heart surgery.
