I am so sorry to have learned that one of my dearest friends in the world, and truly one of the most vibrant and amazing people I have ever known, Brooke Powers Wilson, passed away today after her long fight with cancer. Melanoma that ended up spreading to far and too fast, even for the experimental treatments she courageously tried. 
There’s no way to do Brooke justice in words, because her spirit and energy and smile and laugh were completely rare and unique and contagious. She was an adult who still worked with the Girl Scouts, because she loved it so much. She still participated in Cheer groups because she loved her girls and because she had a cheerful spirit that wouldn’t stop just because high school did. She truly cared about her friends, quitting for a time the job at her park that she loved to help me and my best friend Scot work on a TV show we got to make. And till the end, even through her battle, she would ask you more questions about you than she’d let you ask her. When Scot and I wrote a very important script to us years later, we wrote one of our three main characters named Brooke Powers because she was just an amazing character and human being. And we knew people would fall in love with her. Like I did. Like everyone who knew her did. Like our dear friend John Wilson did. He was lucky enough to make her his wife. 
You get a tiny glimpse of her spirit and beauty in this photo. But I promise you that’s just scratching the surface. I will miss her terribly. Everyone who knew her will. I wish you all got to meet her. You’d have loved her. 
Thank you for gracing us with your presence Beepers. I will love you forever.

If you want to see a great, beautiful, and very unique animated movie, go see ‘Book of Life’ opening today. I’m in it! (Along with newcomers Channing Tatum, Christina Applegate, Zoe Saldana Cheech Marin & Ice Cube.)
