“He’s having some really bad health issues, but he keeps up with me. We support each other, good and bad. When I was in the hospital, he flew up that day like everybody else that came up to see me…Hulk was gracious; Jimmy Hart was great. I don’t remember seeing them because I was in a coma, but they made the effort to go. Those are the kind of things that mean a lot,”
