Reacting to the news of Dean Marsico wrote
I very rarely post personal things on social media, but today I wanted to make an exception for my friend Farrah Forke who passed away.
Farrah and I met in a New York acting class back in the late 80’s. A group of us instantly became friends. We were in our early 20’s and never had been to New York City until we moved there. All of us lived in Greenwich Village, which was to coolest place to be if you had big dreams and no money.
It was a tough time finding work in a bad economy, but Farrah and I eventually got a lucky break. We both got hired at The Grolier Club restaurant/night club on 32nd and Madison.
She was a waitress, and I was a bartender. It quickly became hot spot and we worked with some of the craziest fun people I have ever met. I do miss those 4 in the morning talks when everyone would meet up at an after-hours bar or a late-night Diner.
When someone in your life passes you are left with just memories. There is one we would always talk about. The first Thanksgiving away from our Families.
My cousin Derek, Farrah and I had absolutely no clue as to what we were doing. We bought a turkey that could feed ten, didn’t know how to really use the oven, and called our mothers at least ten times. We did laugh the entire day. Surprisingly we pulled it off. We even made new friends.
Derek invited a taxi driver and a bus boy he met through work who happened to be new immigrants from Russia and Africa.
This was their first Thanksgiving. They were blown away by Pumpkin Pie. I remember we tried to get our neighborhood Vietnam Veteran Dominic to come by. He camped with fellow Vets in Central Park at night and hung out on Bleecker Street during the day.
He wouldn’t come into the apartment, but he did let us make him and his friends a huge plate of food which was a big step for him.
There was never a doubt in our minds that Farrah would make it. She was immensely talented, beautiful, and tough in a good way. She was in a business that didn’t treat anyone with kindness, especially women.
Many years passed, we all moved out of the city and lost touch. One day out of the blue she reached out on Facebook. We exchanged phone numbers and we all talked as if no time had passed. I was so happy to hear she left LA, moved back to her native Texas and was a mother of twin boys. Farrah had been on my mind lately and I regret not reaching out. Another one of life’s regrets.
We will never forget you.
