Many years ago, Christopher Reeve played the role of Superman alongside stars such as Margot Kidder (who once dined at my dad's restaurant) and Gene Hackman.
In 1995, he became paralyzed from the neck down in an equestrian accident.
That was when he became Superman.
This past weekend, Reeve passed away due to complicactions of his injury.
In spite of the paralysis, Christopher kept working, ever so optimistic that one day he would be able to walk and feel again.
In the end, he had proven himself to be no mere mortal.
Respect to Christopher Reeve, the Once and Future Superman, his family and friends.
