They loaned me money when I was broke. They helped me when I needed help over the years. And I have helped them over the years. I thought, you know, without them I don’t have any of this. And we are all really close. How do you repay people like that? And I thought, Oh, well How about a million bucks? I just thought if I get hit by a bus, they’re all in the will. So why am I waiting to get hit by a bus?”
