    I think she meant that while some of us HAVE met him, even had a conversation or two (beyond a stage door), none of us really know in none of us were friends with him; and because he was not a public figure, it's not like we're fans of his where a scrapbook would be a feasible thing.
Yes, what she said, exactly.

Like I said, we're not talking about a public figure. We're talking about a private person who happened to be married to a public figure.

And as this is a fan message board, I am assuming the VAST majority of posters here have never seen Michael Whittenberg outside a "passing-by" at one of his wife's public appearances. And speaking with him for a few minutes here and there outside of a Bernadette concert, CD signing, or what-have-you, does NOT constitute knowing him.

for a public persona, a scrapbook (i think) is very sweet and totally appropriate. Especially in memoriam. For a private person, however, unless you knew them, how can you possibly contribute anything? It just seems vain and self-referential, and doesn't really have meaning.

Again, not trying to offend anyone. That's just my opinion.

Me: Don't you like, die, when you hit 30?
KC: I should smack you.

As I said, I misunderstood the situation. These days, I don't know what's coming or going, so I'm a bit frazzled. Never mind what I thought.
