Guest Book Highlights

March 29, 2019 "I read Dr. Nuland's book, "How We Die," about 20 years ago, and it was the first--and only--book that I ever read that I went back to page 1 and immediately read again. I am now reading it for the 4th time, and am as mesmerized as I was the first time I read it. I decided to Google Dr. Nuland's name and was sad to hear that he had died in 2014. My condolences to his family and friends who must still be missing him, indeed who will always miss him. I am grateful for having known this remarkable man through his books." - Carol Reed (Phoenix, AZ)
May 30, 2018 "Shep was Chief Resident in Surgery while I was a Yale Medical Student and later a Resident in Surgery at Yale. He was so demanding of himself that at first I thought I wouldn't survive the pyramid of the Residency but I realized he was setting the norm for me and my colleagues. I learned the "toughness" working (for Shep) I sensed while a Resident behind him was only his way of making me want to be the best resident I could be. I wanted to be the Chief Resident at Yale too and in 1966 I was chosen as the Chief Resident in Surgery at Yale.

Peace! Shep.....


Peace! Shep......" - Abner ("Biff) Bevin (Chapel Hill, NC)
October 23, 2014 "The love and grace of Dr Nuland continues on. I have just finished his book and have a new sense of peace and understanding-as I try to accept a poor diagnosis. My gratitude and my prayers to the Nuland family." - Kathleen Clarke (Portland, OR)
March 18, 2014 "For someone so curious, probing, and full of kindness and wonder, I agree with Doug's wish -- that the mysteries of his final journey be fulfilling and beautiful. He was a remarkable person. He helped so many people and knowing him personally and through his writing enriched my world." - Betsy Stone Mazzoleni (Salem, NH)
March 12, 2014 "MAY GOD BE WITH YOU HE HAS SAID"I-I MYSELF AM THE ONE THAT IS COMFORTING YOU PEOPLE."isa.51:12...d"
