I remember years ago...driving across western Canada and listening to a fascinating radio interview with Eva Snead on the topic of her book, "Some Call it AIDS I call it murder." I have been searching for a copy of this book(s) unsuccessfully I'm afraid. I don't know if this is the place to make this kind of a comment... but I believe it would certainly be timely to have this book republished and made available for purchase. As history is going down the memory hole... I think her book is an important one to have out there in physical copies.

It was a Great Pleasure to have met Eva.

The light she, put in our hearts, helps light our paths. It will forever shine for us, as we journey down our roads here on earth.

I wish I could reach up to the heavens, to
talk with you Eva once again.

I have a recording of Eva in San Antonio in the early 1990s. Before her book was published (not sure what year) I do not find it on YouTube so I will post it there soon. It is a great lecture on Vaccinations, AIDS and Cancer. It was filmed but I do not have the video. If someone is in possession of that video please, please put on YouTube. She was such a gift to us all.

Beloved Physician, how we have missed you. Your many gifts of healing have forever touched our lives and continue to impact decision-making for ourselves and our families. A day doesn't go by we do not put into practice something you taught us, dear doctor. We have so long wished to return and thank you for the generous hours of counsel and guidance, for virtually bringing back from near death various loved ones through the years, and for the wonderful, constant twinkle in your eye and precious camaraderie you so freely gave my mother and us. Blessings to your family . . . we had no idea you had gone on. So to each family member, a thousand thanks for keeping this site up and running. It is a joy and privilege to express how very much this tremendous woman meant to us.
With gratitude and great affection,
Bethany and Joseph (on behalf of Thelma . . . Unk too!) :-)

Dr. Snead, I just happened to look you up and sadly came across this obit. You were my doctor as a child and I remember telling you, "I see your epidermis" and you looked surprised at first-then you got the joke! You were always full of candor and laughter. May you find peace with the Lord and may your next life be even more fabulous than this one!

I had the opportunity to listen to Dr. Snead lecture in Chicago,Illinois in 1989 and will never forget the experience. She was also kind enough to speak with me on the phone as I prepared my research paper on AIDS for school. I have thought about her many times throughout the years and found her pioneering spirit very refreshing. I have never thought about medicine the same since hearing her and I am very sorry to hear of her passing. It is a great loss to the world. She is a very special spirit.

Blessing to all the family of Dr. Eva Lee Snead.

I met Dr. Snead through Dr. Robert B. Strecker, while privately researching AIDS/HIV in 1991 and interviewed her by phone for about an hour, discussing the connection between Cancer, AIDS, Immunizations and Genocide. She was about to release her book “Some Call It AIDS, I Call It Murder” and answered all my AIDS related questions.

Dr. Eva L. Snead was at the forefront of exposing the Truth about AIDS and was able to answer many of the unanswered questions I had about human health and the intentional cause of disease in humans.

Dr. Snead’s contribution to the Truth about AIDS,Cancer, Immunizations helped me to continue my search for answers regarding human health and I am sincerely indebted to her for her dedication and commitment to Truth in Modern Medicine

Dr. Eva Lee Snead, another Great Spirit to have walked the Face of the Earth.

Blessings To You All

I am just learning about Eva Snead via my online research about whether or not to get the flu vaccine. Even without knowing her, though, I can recognize that she was one of the true and courageous and infinitely generous doctors endowed by God with immediate understanding of what they see in front of them and what to do about it. God willing, I hope to make her acquaintance one day on the other side.

This woman helped bring me into this world, I was the first natural childbirth in the hospital in Floydada, Texas I was born, I had always meant to contact her, and now I have lost my chance I am very sad to hear of her death, my parents both rave about her and what a wonderful person and doctor she was. I wish I had, had a chance to get to meet her.

On Wednesday, they told me you had gone. On Thursday, I fought to carry on. On Friday, I traveled back home. On Saturday, I saw you so still, all alone. On Sunday, we said our goodbyes. On Monday, we opened your will, no surprise. On Tuesday, you returned in an urn. It's Wednesday again, and my heart still hurts.

Mom, it's been quite a week, please tell me you're still not asleep.

I miss you,
your son.

Portrait of Eva Snead 1974
Mom you have been a great inspiration to me. You have taught me how to be not only a loving son, brother & husband but also a very caring and nurturing healer. I will always remember your enthusiasm in the need to care for your all of your children... The four of us and the thousands of the other lives you have touched...

Below is a quote from a fortune cookie that I opened many years ago and discussed with my mother and summarizes an important principal in my mother’s holistic view of medicine:

"The physician heals, nature makes well"

Mom, Rocio & I will always love and miss you. We know that you will be watching over us and protecting us forever.

Mom: Rest in peace. Besos y abrazos...

Mike, may God give you the strength to continue without Eva. She will be greatly missed by us who knew her. It's funny how she was on my mind while I was on vacation and I would think when I get to San Antonio I will call Eva and now?
