    My Love: you taught me well how to go on without you…but is that truly possible? From 17 to 71 I enjoyed your love and encouragement to grow. You gave me so many wonderful memories and hopefully they will sustain me during this most awful time of my life. I’ll love you forever.

    Julie – so sorry to hear about your dad’s passing. It is difficult for all of us left here on earth, but know that he is in a better place with no suffering.

    I cannot express in words all that Dr. Rosmarin has done for me. He helped me through some of the hardest times in my life. He has to be one of the kindest, most caring people I have ever met. He was not only my therapist but my friend. My deepest sympathies go out to his family (which he spoke of all the time and I feel like I know them). You were so fortunate to have a man like him for a husband and father. He will always hold a special place in my heart.

    It seems impossible that you are not here and that I just actually read this. Dad, the imprint of you in me is so huge that the thought of what has happened leaves me so uncertain, however; then I hear your voice and what you told me Sunday afternoon and I have faith that you will never leave me. I will be looking for you everyday and know that my loving G-d will provide comfort by sending me bits of you. Whether you come to me in a song, a memory, a certain smell or flash, I will be whole again in that moment. My sweet,sweet Dad…I’m everything I am…because you loved me. Rest in comfort and freedom.

    Forever My Hero…I Love you

    My words can’t adequately express my fondness for Marty, my love for you, Julie and the depth of my support for your whole family during this time and for the many days that follow. Dads are the best but they raise very strong daughters. Love you – N

    It seems we met a lifetime ago, in 1981, on a visit to one of your innovative programs @ Wilton High School, while I was a Director in New Canaan . You were always full of knowledge & professionalism while willing to respectfully assist your peers. I lost touch when I left for a directorship in Guilford but was happy to unexpectedly reunite when PPT’s & Murray Rothman brought us together within the Milford Schools. By then you had moved to your Orange practice & I to Milford. And while we have had intermittent v.s. consistant contact over the years, I’ve always admired your dedication, professionalism & clinical knowledge, to include quick response to referrals, sensitivity to patient needs & immediate supportive response when called into any of the administrative concerns that are inherent in this work. While I am saddened to learn of your fate, through another who admired your work, I believe you will continue to make our universe a little brighter, in the same way you left a part of this world in a better place. And I hope you are again in reunion with Murray while sharing the light of your brightest star.
