Willie Garson passed away at the far-too-young age of 57 (allegedly of pancreatic cancer). For those of us who loved Sex and the City, losing Stanford Blatch was a huge blow. I had the pleasure of meeting Willie several times. In fact, he even had a house in our old neighborhood and we would see him at the grocery store.
He was incredibly kind and always took the time to chat. I recommended a restaurant to him which he said he enjoyed.
This loss came as a total shock since he was just filming on the new Sex and the City show, And Just Like That. We will miss you, Willie. Rest in peace.
