Dear Sheila,

I just received notice from the Yale Alumni Association of Harry's passing. I had the great privilege of sitting next to you and Harry at our last Class of 1973 Medical School Reunion. What an uplifting experience it was for me to sit next to just a beautiful couple! The entires in this guest book say it all - we have lost a real mensch.

With sympathy,

I'm so sorry to hear of Dr. Romanowitz's passing. He took wonderful care of my 2-yr-old just last month when he cut his head and needed stitches. I'm sure many, many people benefitted from his warm and comforting bedside manner.

A fine man, teacher and example to all.

Rest peacefully Hesh.

My dear friend and family,

We learned about Hesh the following day I returned from Israel and quite honestly couldn't process the news as reality. Just came from "left field," and as a shock.

Hesh was a doer, community minded, fun and a sweet gentalman.

May his name always be a blessing and reminder of a good life lost.

Love,

Rob and Ellen Zwang

Dear Sheila and family,
Words can't even begin to express how devastated we were to find out (albeit belated) about Hesh.
Please know that he was so special to us and Rebecca and we will never forget how great he was as a doctor and friend.

My brother-in-law Hesh was the younger brother Vivian and I always wished for... but in so many ways he was our older brother as well!

Hesh was the consummate host... a Jewish mother and father all rolled into one... His motto was “What can I offer you?” When he was sitting shiva for his mother, I tried to be Heshy... but after running myself ragged I finally had to admit that I could not do it as well as the original.

Who else was interested in so many areas of human knowledge... medicine and sports and theater and languages (Yiddish, Russian, Hebrew) and music and movies and media, to name just a few. Who knew so much about so many things? Who else, for instance, knew the Jeopardy answers quicker than Alex Trebek...and Alex had the answers right in his hand!

But most important to us were Hesh's special qualities of heart. All we had to do was mention that we liked a certain show, and before we could count to ten, he had recorded it for us. He would wait patiently in line to get us theater tickets. With Auntie Sheila at his side, Uncle Hesh joyfully traveled to Florida to officiate at the brit milah of his grandnehew Jesse, and to Thailand (!) on two occasions, to officiate at the brit milah ceremonies of his grandnephews Aaron and Aaden. He simply couldn't do enough, for those who were lucky enough to be his friends and his patients, and for us, who were lucky enough to be his family.

Zekher tzaddik liv'rakha... may our lives be blessed by the memories he has bequeathed us, and by the example of a life well and truly lived.

I met Dr Romanowitz only a few times, but I was so touched by his warm, friendly, gentle manner. I am so sorry for your loss.
March 10, 2013
Our deepest sympathy to the Romanowitz for your loss. Hesh made such a positive impact on so many families, his memory is sure to live on.

I have worked with Dr Romanowitz for many years and am sad to hear of his passing. His family is in my thoughts and prayers. Kelly Sullivan APRN

Hesh was my brother-in-law, but really more a brother. Sheila, was generous to share him with us for 42 years... and as they came along, so did Avra, Dan and Seamus. Hesh was one of a kind even within the family and was with us (Sheila, Jerry and me) for even more years than our Mother. They both left us on Adar 18 and are now at peace. Hesh, you worked so hard for everyone. Rest well.
