A Message from Damien's Husband Ralph

Postby OscarGuy » Mon Sep 10, 2018 7:51 pm

I thought I would share a lovely little note Ralph sent to the admin contact address for the UAADB. Copied below:

Hi. This is Ralph, Damien Bona's partner. I sometimes will brave going to
this site and reading all the threads Damien started or commented on over
the many years he was part of this amazing group of cineastes. It helps
explain what he was doing so late into the night while I was already
asleep. I'm not a film buff like Damien, and although I know he has an
encyclopedic grasp of Oscar and film history, reading his posts here also
reminds me of how generous he is, how funny, and how much he hated goddam
cartoons like Incredibles. I do not share his views on this.

I'm writing to thank all of you for keeping this thread going. I also want
to let you know that Damien's collection of films are still with me, most
on video cassettes, some in DVD format. He was so diligent about collecting
and cataloguing movies. I know he would love to share them with all of you.
I don't yet know how to make them all easily available, but I am trying to
figure that out.

Meantime, I just want to say thanks for keeping his name on this thread. I
love it.
