Dear Brookie and family
I have just heard the sad news. It's May 15th. So please pardon me for pouring my heart out a little bit here.
I would like you all to know how precious "Dr G" was to me. He was an incredibly calm and sensitive man, a real mensch. I knew him professionally and spent many hours with him, working on learning, understanding and integrating his amazing ideas. I quote him and "The Work" to my friends and family every day. His insights were brilliant and very instructive in healing for me and also for my husband, David. I would have to say that he taught us how to live a life of "relative contentment" and re-imagine our marriage to create a wonderful "Love Circle" of respect.
The last time I saw him was a chance encounter at a little sandwich shop where he was with his beautiful wife.
As I recall he'd had an injury and was using a walker.
When I asked him how he was, he said, "I'm coping. But you know, getting old isn't for sissies!" And he made me laugh. Dear dear man.
And, he also, said, "Thank goodness for The Work." I nodded knowingly.
I am so glad that I was able to see him that day and thank him again for the wonderful patience and kindness he showed me over the years.
My husband David passed away 8 years ago now. I have a "Dr G" story from David.
When my husband found out he was not going to make it, I began to sob and sob.
He waited for me to catch my breath, looked down over his eye glasses and said, "You WILL go for see Dr G, won't you?"
That was my David's way of comforting me. And soon after David passed, I went to see Dr G. It was like seeing an old friend. A friend who knew my husband. It was EXACTLY the right thing for me to do.
My youngest son who was 3 years of age when I began seeing Dr G. He was raised with the healthy concepts that Dr G taught David and me.
He's now a grown man of 28 years of age now and he is another calm and sensitive mensch. I believe that Dr Bernard Glazman lives on in my dear son.
The world is a better place because Dr Bernard Glazman was in it.
p.s. My nickname is Frankie. That was the name Dr G used for me.
When there was a Frankie born into the Glazman family, he was so kind to mention it to me. I was very honoured!
