“I was just driving and I was thinking about my friend, Heath, who died 10-years ago and this song came on, ‘Time to Pretend,'” she says in a series of clips. “It came out after he had passed away and I remember when it came out because I thought — it made me think of him. I just thought he would have liked this song, you know? For some reason, every time I hear this song — and I was just — it’s weird. That’s all.”

"I can’t believe it’s ten years since the world lost this most beautiful spirit," she wrote. "Heath was so funny, so kind, free minded and creative, playful, so generous and a hundred other positives. I feel lucky to have known him, and join the list of so many who miss him."
Rest in peace, Heath.
