Thanks for posting this a2zme I just watched it and thoroughly enjoyed it .
I was wondering if anyone else noticed in the end credits a thanks to Kelly Lynch ? Ok it's not an uncommon name, but if it is the same person, whose work we have become so familiar with, then she was traceable as recently as 2005 and involved in the making of a film Leonard was involved with, which seems a bit odd.
It's probably someone else but just thought I'd mention it

I think our friend was Kelley (with a second e) Lynch ;-)

The timing would make it likely that it was Leonard's Manager who would have helped with arrangements.

Quite interesting in relation to the video to read this perspective from Philip Tetrault's daughter:

Rpan, thanks for posting this article. I was very moved by Amanda's honesty in relationship to her feelings of being embarrassed by and ashamed of her father. I think anybody who has or had a mentally ill loved one can relate to this.
On one hand we love them and want to protect them and on the other embarrassed by them. I admire her for coming
To terms with these feelings and loving and accepting her father for who he is.

Thank you for sharing both the video and the interview with Amanda. Mental illness is difficult for the peron who is experiencing the confusion and disruption of thoughts but is also equally difficult for the individual that shares a close relationship with the person who has the affliction . I read this article and it reminded me of the movie "A Beautiful Mind" which was also a true story of a man's struggle for a balance between reality and that which was not real. Both of these men also have a gift of creativity and intelligence. A most remarkable story told through the eyes of a little girl who grew up to be a very wise and insightful woman. I am so moved by this true story ... thank you

Thanks for the link, rpan!

Such a genuine insight in the suffering of mentally ill (and their families) brings compassion into people's hearts...
