Performing and working with Marvin was one of the finest experiences of my life, but even better was the time I spent with him talking about baseball, dessert (while we sampled several) and life. All of my love and prayers go out his beautiful and extraordinary wife and best friend — Terre Blair Hamlisch!!
Marvin — you taught all who knew you how to be better musicians and artists but more than that… you showed us how to just be BETTER!!
We miss you more than you know!!” — J. Ernest Green

Your faith in me has made all the difference. Your generosity on stage and off is a shining example to all of us. You continue to inspire every time we play your music. It was Gershwin that brought us together and Hamlisch that keeps us going. Looking forward to our next adventures. THANK YOU MARVIN! (D.F.I.U.)” — Kevin Cole

Besides being an unbelievable talent, which everyone in the world knows, he was the kindest, most giving man. We all miss him terribly. All of my love and prayers go to his beautiful and strong widow Terre Hamlisch- one of the most amazing women I know. We love you Marvin.” — Marissa McGowan
