SCOTT'S CELEBRATION OF LIFE AND FUNDRAISER

MONDAY, AUGUST 20, 2018

NEWPORT PERFORMING ARTS CENTER (PAC)

I am in the process of organizing a visual good bye party for Scott. Scott loved colors, images, his friends, our blended family and this community. One of his strengths was being inclusive.  I am in the process of finding/or putting together power point slide shows that we have done in the past or new slide shows of his more recent images. I am in the process of gathering musicians to perform at the event while Scott's slide shows run in the Alice Silverman theater. Out in the foyer we will be selling select items from Scott's and our art at affordable prices. There will also be a silent auction with big ticket items that people may purchase. More about those items later. I envision this will be a late afternoon and early evening celebration. Please spread the word with your friends and on any online sites you may be a part of. I will develop a flyer/poster that you may share with others in August.

I want to thank everyone for your continued love and support. It's been a bumpy road with many tears and laughter along the way. Scott's quick decline, though unexpected was in hindsight a blessing for him. He was in no pain but did suffer from panic attacks when he was unable to breath. Hospice started on Saturday afternoon and by early Tuesday morning he had passed. He lived a full, productive, artistic life and was active until the last 3 weeks of his life. Although he didn't get to say goodbye to many of you ... he felt he had spent many years with you as wonderful friends. He felt grateful to all of you until his last breath.
