      Thank you for the music, the memories and the wonderful legacy. You will be sorely missed Mr Hamlisch. Your music however will be with us always.

      I love his music, just love it. It has a timelesss simplicity.
      Whenever he came to England he was always such the perfect gentleman.
      Rest in peace.

      As a 44 year old East Coast-er, I have to say that his songs were, as Mr. Vern Dufford said above, the soundtrack for my life, my love(s) and my losses.

      One could say that some of what he wrote was schmaltz, but those songs were close to the bone, they struck the heart of the marrow, and somehow seemed forever true — especially for those of us who are LGBT love deeply, outside the margin, and on the fringe, where our history may go unwritten, but never unsung.

      My hope is that the younger generation(s) will discover his songs, again and again, so that we can keep unbroken the thread from aunt to nephew, from sister to niece.

      Go find his songs if you don’t know them . If they don’t resonate today, they may speak to you tomorrow!
