"To my Chris.

I've been thinking how I could possibly

tell you how much you mean to me.

I remember when I first started to fall

in love with you like it was last night.

Lying naked beside you

in that tiny apartment...

...it suddenly hit me that I was part

of this whole larger thing.

Just like our parents...

...or our parents' parents.

Before that, I was just living my life

like I knew everything...

...and suddenly this bright light hit me

and woke me up.

That light was you.

I can't believe it's already been

5O years since you married me.

And still to this day, every day...

...you make me feel like the girl I was...

...when you first turned on the lights

and we started this adventure together.

Happy anniversary...

...my love.

My friend till the end.



"Chris, my best friend...

...how lucky am I

that I met you 50 years ago."

"Dear Nana,

thank you so much for my truck.

I love the color,

and I play with it every day."

"What a truly beautiful wedding,

and what a gorgeous bride.

There wasn't a dry eye in the house,

especially mine.

Your aunt and I are so proud of you."

"He served our country

with honor and dignity.

I'm grateful I was able to fight alongside him.

He will live always in my heart."


please hold.

"Love, Uncle Doug."

Spike Jonze

Adam Spiegel (born October 22, 1969), known professionally as Spike Jonze (pronounced "Jones"), is an American filmmaker, photographer, and actor, whose work includes music videos, commercials, film and television. Jonze began his career as a teenager photographing BMX riders and skateboarders for Freestylin' Magazine and Transworld Skateboarding, and co-founded the youth culture magazine Dirt. Moving into filmmaking, he began shooting street skateboarding films, including the influential Video Days (1991). Jonze co-founded the skateboard company Girl Skateboards in 1993 with riders Rick Howard and Mike Carroll. Jonze's filmmaking style made him an in-demand director of music videos for much of the 1990s, resulting in collaborations with Sonic Youth, Beastie Boys, Fatboy Slim, Daft Punk, Weezer, Bj� rk, Kanye West and Arcade Fire. Jonze began his feature film directing career with Being John Malkovich (1999) and Adaptation. (2002), both written by Charlie Kaufman; the former earned Jonze an Academy Award nomination for Best Director. He was a co-creator and executive producer of MTV's Jackass reality franchise. Jonze later began directing films based on his own screenplays, including Where the Wild Things Are (2009) and Her (2013); for the latter film, he won the Academy Award, Golden Globe, and the Writers Guild of America Award for Best Original Screenplay, while receiving Academy Award nominations for Best Picture and Best Original Song ("The Moon Song"). He has worked as an actor sporadically throughout his career, co-starring in David O. Russell's war comedy Three Kings (1999) and appeared in supporting roles in Bennett Miller's Moneyball (2011) and Martin Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street (2013), in addition to a recurring role in comedy series The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret (2010–2012) and cameo appearances in his own films. Jonze co-founded Directors Label, with filmmakers Chris Cunningham and Michel Gondry, and the Palm Pictures company. He is currently the creative director of Vice Media, Inc. and its multinational television channel Viceland. more…
