Dear Tracy, I was going through saved notes from my mothers closet the night before your loved husband passed. So very very sad for your lose, and do let me know if I can help in any way... You were so fun in high school at Memorial, coaching me for studio seven, and planning dreams at that time. You saw you would be on broadway then, with your fathers proud spirit behind you. Strong and beautiful, unafraid, and also loved. Talent yes, but so much more to give. Your letters or notes to me were so kind, and I now pray for you! And Peter. As you knew my great leukemia oncologist Dad, he passed this spring, and Mom followed 3 months later after 68 years together. God bless your family, for I know this pain is real and hard. All of us left in Houston love and support you. Every day is a gift of time. Live and love each blessed moment. So lucky he found you and you Peter. Wake up to warm hugs, and you are so needed by those surrounding you, in your heart. God bless you, and yours. As the sun sets, and rises, try to find peace? Knowing Drs are all only human, and we are all snowflakes.

I never knew you personally, however I have watched you since I was 12. I had the biggest crush on you starting from BB and it continued while you were on Newhart. You always seemed kind to your fans. You will be sorely missed by those you knew and by the millions of fans who loved you. Rest well.

I always made sure to be home when Bosom Buddies was on. Couldn't miss one moment of Peter "Hottie" Scolari on TV. No Tivo/DVR back then. He was such a huge presence and will truly be missed. One in a million he was. Godspeed Peter!

I grew up watching Honey I Shrunk The Kids The TV Show and seeing Peter as main character Wayne. I always wanted to ask him did he ever feel like he had big shoes taking over a role made famous first by Rick Moranis in the film that inspired the series. I also saw repeats of Bosom Buddies and was excited when I saw Peter appear in Gotham. Mr. Scolari thank you for the memories and being a fantastic actor. My condolences to your family and friends.
