Gregory Peck Encounter

Sharon Hemry and Gregory Peck

Last Updated on March 23, 1998

     I met Mr. Peck for the first time when he came to Anchorage, Alaska in 1996 with his 'Conversation with Gregory Peck' , I was so impressed with him that I kept thinking how much I wish that I had given him one of my ceramic pieces. It haunted me for months. A year and a half later I found out that he was going to be speaking in Tacoma, Washington, my wish came true, and I flew down to see him and give him my Raku polar bear. He sent me a wonderful thank you note, which I will treasure always . I'm hoping to get him back someday for a fly-infishing trip.
