James Gandolfini was more than an actor to me

In a way I can’t explain, Tony Soprano was personal for me
Poor Tony Soprano…I mean James Gandolfini. Actually, I mean, poor me and millions just like me. I feel a personal sense of loss.
“I spent more hours living with Tony and his family than I have with any of my neighbors. Only a few friends and family have a larger ledger of time with me.”
The reason we cared, James Gandolfini, is because our relationship with you was personal and intimate. Your brand was REAL to us. You seemed like a neighbor and friend. Albeit, a rather violent neighbor, but hey, we all have flaws.
So I’m genuinely sad at his death. I feel the loss personally because a part of me passed away too. I spent more hours living with Tony and his family than I have with any of my neighbors. Only a few friends and family have a larger ledger of time with me. It was his investment in our lives that we all grieve. It was not a wide and deep understanding of his talent as an actor.
He never seemed like an actor to me.
