“I enjoyed every moment,” he continues. “It sounds wonderful and it was wonderful. I had beautiful women, beautiful cars, clothes. People liked me. I had nice friends. I have a house. I have no debts. I’m old but I have my head. My body is shot, but hell, I’m 91. I had happy moments and unhappy moments. And if I had my life to live over, I wouldn’t change a thing.”
