    Thank you Pete for writing such a beautiful and truthful article about our wonderful friend. I think about Scott every day and am lucky to have known him and made tons of music with him that I will cherish. Luckily, we always recorded when we played. Scott first approached me as a student, but once we played together I would not have it that way. I said, "you don't need to study with me, let's just play together and have a duo". That was the beginning of a wonderful musical, personal and humorous friendship. My heart is broken that this man suffered and his loving wife, Jenny, had her one true love taken away prematurely. Scott will always live inside of me and my music.

    I had the opportunity to have Scott as jazz guitar teacher for one year, when I was in New York. I remember him as a wonderful maestro, competent, inspiring and gentle: an exquisite musician.
    I will keep his lessons in my heart.

    I can truly say that Scott was passionately committed to music. In the 17 years of our marriage and nearly 20 years of being together, music was what he lived. His happiest moments were with a guitar in his hands (some of his most frustrating as well). If death is the absence of presence, for me it is also the absence of sound. I know I will never stop missing the sound of his guitar. It was as individual and beautiful as he was. I was his biggest fan and by far the luckiest one as well.

    Music Always Scott!

    With all my love,
