NOTE TO SELF

Growing up, Will lived a tragic and in the lowest point in life. His father, Christopher, died in 2004 following the horse-back riding incident while his mother died of lung cancer after a year-and-a-half, as reported by CBS News.

"This is the low point. There's nowhere to go but up, and that's exactly where you're headed."
