Back in 1995, I had the honor and joy of meeting two men who helped make up my childhood dreams; Haruo Nakajima and Kenpachiro Satsuma. The men who WERE Godzilla.
Mr. Nakajima, the original Godzilla, passed away today. He leaves behind a titanic legacy, and many adoring, heartbroken fans.
Rest in Peace, Haruo Nakajima. Not only did you fill my childhood with joy and wonder, but you embraced me with kindness and showed me how a truly great man acts.
