I found Dr. E, that's what I called my former boss, on Facebook last week. I send a friend request. I hadn't seen him in 21-years. I was sad to learn of his passing. There was something I always wanted to ask him but I was too afraid at the time. Now all I am left with is regret. He will be sorely missed.
How appropriate! Alan would love it. I still think of him everyday...yes, everyday and still miss him terribly. I still have 100s of questions and things to tell him. Love you Alan
The unveiling of the inscribed footstone to commemorate Dr. Alan Jay Eidelberg (8/13/1952 - 4/30/2012) will take place at 1:30 pm on Sunday, April 21, 2013, in Wellwood Cemetery on Long Island, New York. The inscription will read as follows: Baltimore's deeply caring old-fashioned veterinarian for 30 years to small animals and their human companions...."I'm there for you" son and younger brother; grandma Beba's joy; good-hearted nephew, cousin and uncle; fantasy comic books collector; avid auction-goer; bright and witty "pit bull" and attractor of tenacious friends.
Also in April of this year, at Tuskegee University in Alabama, an annual $1,000 scholarship in Alan's name and honor donated by his brother Bob will be awarded to a student planning to practice veterinary medicine in a currently unserved or underserved community; the scholarship will be awarded for at least each of the next five years.
This is the first year I was not out shopping for some type of "frankenstein" gift. I use to grumple about it, but now I'd love to be able to find him something and give it to him in person. Still have lots of vet questions and no one to call up at anytime.....esp the middle of the night....for answers. Frank and I still miss him and think of him often.
Love ya Alan, Linda and Frank
