This gentleman was a gentleman and an inspiration to anyone struggling to work their way through great trauma. WW2, Pearl Harbor, missing at sea, POW, drink problems later...he had it all. The Hollywood movie about him has also just been completed. 'Louis Zamperini, the Olympic runner and World War II officer who survived a horrific plane crash, a seven-week journey across the Pacific in a raft, near starvation and unspeakable torture in Japanese POW camps, has died' Angelina Jolie said "It's a loss impossible to describe' but I prefer this tribute, which made me cry: ' I will never forget our last, laughing talk, your singsong 'I love you! I love you!' and the words you whispered to me when you last hugged me goodbye, words that left me in happy tears, words that I will remember forever. I will love you and miss you to the end of my days. Godspeed, sweet Louie."
