Treat Williams, my TV dad and real-life dear friend: in a deeply flawed industry, you set the gold standard for how we should treat one another. My 71-year-old friend with the soul of a 25-year-old. Grateful we got to come back together this season, one last time. Family forever. pic.twitter.com/IpCv12sQee
