“… It is because of you that I became a Stage Manager, through your knowledge for the craft that you selflessly imparted on me… I often say the school of Gregoryburn down… a script without ALL line changes and ALL blocking for ALL the characters, was unheard of… sigh… I miss those days. We’ve been through the grinder and back, but never bad enough to keep distance… it just came with the job… friendship was more important. I will miss you, my friend. Until we meet again, walk good; walk in peace.”
