Dear Michael,

I'm so sorry to hear about Scott's passing. My best friend Brendan Fay and I first got to know each other doing Fiddler on the Roof and Bye Bye Birdie together with you guys at the Entr'acte Theatre Ensemble in Dover. Yours was the first company with which I ever did community theatre, and I've worked with dozens of companies since. Some of my fondest memories are from the shows we did with you. My deepest sympathies for your loss, and thanks to both of you for all you gave to us.

Dearest Michael,

I only learned of Scott's passing this morning via Debbie Williams Nanery's entry on FB with the Cornerstone Kids singing "Happiness" in memory of Scott. I am so very sad today. The memories I have of you and Scott are very special to me -- I shall never forget the wonderful times working with both of you on "Me & My Girl" and "Bye Bye Birdie". Scott was a very special man. His memory will live on in the hearts of many.
