He continued and noted, “This journey that we go on is certainly an imperfect journey on this world of ours, and you have to just get used to that idea that this is an imperfect journey, that’s what it is. Last year was just a brutal year for everybody, but personally too, it was a brutal year. And then when you least expect it, you meet the greatest person ever, truly.”
