      RIP.

      this was from Arnold himself.

      "Franco,
      You’ve heard me say that I don’t like when people call me a self-made man.
      You’ve even heard me say that you’re part of the reason I could never accept that label.
      But I wanted you to know why.
      From the minute we met in Munich, you were my partner in crime. We pushed each other, we competed with each other, and we laughed at every moment along the way.
      When I finally got to America, I was alone. I’d left my family, my country, my whole life behind. So when I asked Joe Weider to bring you to train with me, it was because I knew I wasn’t the same without my best friend. I could thrive without money, without my parents, but I couldn’t thrive without you.
      I am devastated today. But I am also so, so grateful for the 54 years of friendship and joy we shared. The pumps, the chess games, the construction work, the meals, the pranks, the life lessons — we did it all together. We grew and we learned and we loved. My life was more fun, more colorful, and more complete because of you.
      I will always miss you. But I’ll also know that a part of you lives on in me, in Debbie, in Maria, and in the millions of people you inspired every day you lived. And I will be there for Maria and Debbie, so you can rest now with no worries.
      I love you Franco. I will always remember the joy you brought to my life, the advices you gave me, and the twinkle in your eye that never disappeared. You were my best friend.
      Love always,
      Arnold"

      Wow that brings me to tears, yesterday was also the day my best friend was found dead. You'll be missed greatly Franco, an inspiration to me since the "Good Ol'Days", since we were both short guys. In your memory I'm going extra hard today, from here on till my last heartbeat. Getting old does suck, it's hard dealing with the fact of coming to the ending of your life and having everyone and everything you've grown up with disappear and dissolve... slowly... daily. When you get older you'll really learn not to take time for granted ever again.
      Leaders did what others weren't willing to do, now they enjoy the things that others do not.

      Saw this yesterday and was quite sad. When I first started following bodybuilding in the late 70ís early 80ís Franco was my idol being a phenomenal shorter bodybuilder. RIP champ
