HAPPY FATHER’S DAY! From the desk of Terre Blair Hamlisch: “My Two Favorite Men!!!”

New York — “My father loved to fish and Marvin had never been fishing. Not a hobby growing up on the west side of New York city! So this photo was taken of my father, Bill, taking Marvin fishing in Montauk. The boat pulled out of the dock at the crack of dawn and I hear Marvin’s voice over the water:

Bill! Bill! Remind me again,

why we are doing this?

When we could just buy the fish

down the road

at the Wainscott fish market?!”


Marvin Hamlisch and Bill Blair (Terre Blair's two favorite men!)

Marvin Hamlisch and Bill Blair (Terre Blair’s two favorite men!)

I miss you both dreadfully.

Love you both forever and after that.

  1. Although I never “met” Marvin, several yrs back I sent him a cassette of myself and he wrote back with a comment I so treasure, I keep his note framed on a bookcase. Finally, at a very bad time,shortly after my mother’s passing, I contacted Marvin and he returned my call. I wasn’t home when he called so he left a message,“Uh, this is Marvin Hamlisch,looking for Judith Lerner. You can call me at … So I did. I keep his voice on my phone Just to hear him saying my name; returning my call.

  2. blessed to have known both these men! Loved our Marvel!, Bill Blair was always so kind to me!
