"The video that you chose was a testament to life! Should anyone have had reservations about the topic, a cemetery, was greatly rewarded by being in the audience. The film weaves through life always accenting a thought with beautiful photography. Even shots of flowers become alive as the wind rustles through and causes our minds to wonder. Yes, the person died but we are brought back to life with the rich visual depiction of what is worth living for. The diverse examples of lives that you have chosen again give moments to pause and reflect. The young slave, the young physician who tries to heal smallpox only to fall prey to the devastating disease, the Asian family who faces death in reverse order burying a son before the parents – all these examples become life affirming. The voices, the music and the text all add to the artistry of this film. It was definitely an evening that we’ll remember and ponder for a long time. As another comment, let me mention that residents are coming to me to let me know how much they enjoyed your talk. One resident told me that it was the best she heard at Youville House! Needless to say… they want you back!!!”

Thank you for your lecture and film screening of "First Contact" at the Meeting House on March 28 It was a pleasure to work with you - professional, good-humored, reliable, and genuinely appreciative of a receptive audience. I particularly appreciated your flexibility in welcoming questions from the audience earlier than originally planned, and so deftly re-stating those for the audience's benefit. This discussion format seemed to be very well received. Thanks again! We will certainly keep you in mind for future programs."
