Reuben was a guest speaker at a conference I organized in 1988. We spent some time together on the phone in the months before the conference and then at the conference itself. He was amazingly intuitive and said to me: "You should work with children." He gave me a wonderful recommendation to graduate school. I appreciated him very much for his willingness to speak out on behalf of members of the adoption triad. Blessings and peace to his family.

Dear Sydell,
Sorry to hear of Reuben's passing. He was a kind and open-hearted soul with a gentle sense of humor, and a terrific father in law. I'm glad he was part of my life.

Dear Sydell,
It was a privilege to know Ruby and to be with you both on that tragic day of 9/11/2001 in Washington DC. Ellen and my thoughts and prays are with you and your family at this time.

I was so very sad to learn of the passing of Reuben Pannor, an incredibly kind man who helped so many people in the adoption triangle. I am a birthmother who was forced to relinquish my first daughter in 19 61. Losing my daughter had a very negative affect on my life. I had read the book that he wrote with Annette Baran and Arthur Sorosky when I searched for my daughter in 1980. I had no one to discuss my search with who knew about adoption so I called Reuben from my home in Connecticut and he called me back very quickly. He was so supportive and very helpful as I made a plan to approach my child. Once my daughter and I were in reunion, Reuben saw my daughter several times as well as both her adoptive mother and myself. His help was invaluable and life changing. I then had to privilege of seeing Reuben at conferences concerning adoption reform all over this country. I also saw him occasionally when he came to Boulder.

How can one person do so much for so many? He and Annette assisted all of us affected by destructive adoption practices to give birth to a new group of policies and laws concerning adoption. Reuben understood---and he listened.

God bless you, Reuben. You will never be forgotten by any of us. You were the father of the adoption reform movement. We will always love and miss you.

My Uncle was a very kind and gentle man. He and his brother came from an era and Jewish culture that taught them to care for and live to help others. They both dedicated their lives to that end. They were both good men.
