Dear Mr. Surovy,

More than once I have told my friends how my love for opera started when I saw your mother as 'Carmen ' in the movie Going My Way when I was 12 yrs. old. It drew me to the 'Texaco Opera House' on Saturdays to learn more.

So you see, Mr. S, how I will always be grateful for your mother's talent.

My deepest sympathy to you and yours.

I worked with Ms. Stevens during the Metropolitan Opera National Company's inaugural season (1965-66). It was an honor to be in her presence. Always a kind word from her. Thank you for sharing her with music lovers everywhere.
