From the New York Daily News:
Messages written by Dick Clark’s fans will be part of the confetti that’s showered on Times Square next New Year’s Eve.
People can share their memories of Clark on square-inch pieces of confetti at the Times Square Visitor Center & Museum. The messages will be displayed at the center’s Confetti Wishing Wall until New Year’s Eve.
Tributes also can be submitted online. Visitors to the center can leave flowers and mementoes beneath a photo montage of Clark’s life.
The Times Square Alliance says Clark “was instrumental in making New Year’s Eve at the Crossroads of the World what it is today.”
I’m completely dying already. I’m seriously unsure of how I’m going to muddle through this New Year’s without the physical presence of Dick Clark on Times Square. I mean, fans commemorating Dick Clark’s life through the very New Year’s confetti that dropped around him for forty years? I love it. It breaks my heart. I knew that the televised New Year special would never be the same, but I didn’t expect it to be so … so poignant. Dick Clark, we miss you already, and it’s not even May yet.
