Reggie's Guestbook

Viewing entries 1 through 5 (Total entries: 21)


I am so blessed to have known Reggie. Despite the short time that I knew her, she remains one of the most influential people I've ever met.

I am one of probably hundreds of people that Reggie helped throughout the years as a family therapist. Reggie helped me through a very difficult time in my life with reassuring strength, honesty and clarity. During the few months I worked with Reggie, she shared with me so many stories of her family and childhood - stories of how she coped with the difficult turns in her life. In doing so, she taught me new ways to view life, love and happiness. And with this, her spirit will live on in my heart forever.

Dear Eric, Mark and Ed,
It is with great sadness that I write to you. Reggie was an extraordinary woman, filled with so much love, kindness, intelligence and fun.

When my doctor at Stanford learned that we were now living in San Francisco at the St Regis, she said that I must meet Reggie, that she was extraordinary, and I would know what she meant when I met her. One day, a beautiful, charming, full of life woman and I struck up a conversation in the elevator. I had met dear Reggie!

Thus began a very special relationship, with so much in common; our work, politics, feelings, wonderful husbands. We spent enchanting times with Ed and Reggie. Our times all together were cut short by her illness, but I treasure the times in those last days and weeks that I had the incredible privilege of sitting with her, holding her hand, and experiencing Reggie's tremendous courage and openness, as she shared her thoughts and feelings. Even toward the end, her inner and outer beauty took my breath away.

I feel so deeply honored to have known Reggie and to have experienced her remarkable, extraordinary "being." I miss her terribly; yet, feel lucky that we have the gift of sweet, wonderful Ed in our lives.

Reggie wil always live in my heart and in my memories; she is with me forever.

To all who cared and loved Reggie, I send you love at this painful time of loss and grief.

With love,

I was on a drift boat fishing trip in the Rogue River wilderness when
Eric's call and Mark's email arrived. I guess I somehow thought that
because I had not received the phone call that I dreaded, it would
never come. It has been difficult for me as I know it has been for
everyone else to come to grips with Reggie's passing. You know how
close I felt to her. She was a joy and an inspiration for me for so
long. I will always treasure her memory and I know I will think of her
fondly and often. I look forward to time with each of your families
during which we can share our memories.

Ron and I had the wonderful luck of meeting Reggie and Ed on a 2005 Stanford trip to India. Like everyone we were instantly smitten. Reggie was electrifying! So passionate and connected and insistent upon optimism. She was ageless and brave. I wish she had lived to see Obama elected--it would have been so much fun to celebrate together. I'm so grateful to have known her a little and will always keep her in my memory as a joyful model of living fully. I love your video, Mark, and gave it as a gift to a friend whose husband and son were both dying. Thank you for this wonderful celebration of Reggie. With love, Pat Adler
