Kevin Smith of the Kevinsmithshow.com passed away from complications after a heart operation due to an attack.  His legacy lives on in those who followed his show as well as the guests he interviewed throughout the almost 15 years the show was on.  Dr. Courtney Brown shares his memory of Kevin in a letter with genuine appreciation for him. 

Kevin, of most of those I know, did the one thing few if any would do.. he devoted as much time as needed, hours at times, teaching me how to run a radio show, how to address and respect guests, and what it takes to be successful in the world Kevin pionered in the area I feel I must carry a torch for.  Kevin new that I was different and that I had to know what he knew.  Of course he shared the same with anyone who asked, but it was me that he was specific with and wouldn't allow wiggle room to 'do it Lee's way'.  The thing is, Courtney reveals that Kevin never took orders and did things based on his experience for lack of trust that someone else would be there when needed.  That's the same with me.  I can't be ordered to perform.  but I can look at the rule book and go at it my way as he did his.  For that, he felt this and knew before his death that I was one to benefit from his teachings.  Watch out Coast to Coast and the rest, here I come with Kevin back seat driving and nagging me from a shoulder.
