Los emotivos tributos a Lou Reed han aparecido toda la semana, pero ahora llega el más emotivo de todo, o más bien el más conmovedor. Su esposa Laurie Anderson se había mantenido en silencio desde el la muerte de Lou el domingo pero ahora utilizó un pequeño periódico de East Hampton, Nueva York (The East Hampton Star) para compartir unas palabras sobre Reed. En su corto pero emotivo texto, Anderson habla sobre los últimos días de Lou y el legado que dejará:

To our neighbors:

What a beautiful fall! Everything shimmering and golden and all that incredible soft light. Water surrounding us.

Lou and I have spent a lot of time here in the past few years, and even though we’re city people this is our spiritual home.

Last week I promised Lou to get him out of the hospital and come home to Springs. And we made it!

Lou was a tai chi master and spent his last days here being happy and dazzled by the beauty and power and softness of nature. He died on Sunday morning looking at the trees and doing the famous 21 form of tai chi with just his musician hands moving through the air.

Lou was a prince and a fighter and I know his songs of the pain and beauty in the world will fill many people with the incredible joy he felt for life. Long live the beauty that comes down and through and onto all of us.

— Laurie Anderson
his loving wife and eternal friend
