There was a time in my life that Ollie gave me great inspiration. Because of the death of my wife I was left with an eleven year old daughter. I was doing a picture with Harry, and Ollie was, of course, ever present. They embraced me the like of which I have never been embraced before or since. It was a sad time for me, but it's impossible to be gloomy or sad around Ollie.
