You've done a terrific job.
Marilyn Davis, Dept. of Regulatory Agencies
Started reading it, and couldn’t put it down. It
is beautifully done, the memories brought back a
lot of people I had forgotten, and I laughed out
loud at least a dozen times, the hardest at the
Romer reply to Dorothy Rupert.
Carl Hilliard, former Associated Press reporter
Well, you outdid yourself. This little book is
wonderful. I love the "Romerisms" - a brilliant
Sheila Ryan, former Office of Energy
Conservation Deputy Director
The book is wonderful! More than I expected,
even! What an accomplishment.
Maxine Smith, Corvallis, OR
It's terrific! Thank you so much for doing this.
It's a wonderful gift not only for Roy, but also
for all who know him -- and those who would like
to know him.
David Miller, Director, The Denver Foundation
The book is wonderful and so very well done. I
have laughed and laughed as I have read it.
Cindy Parmenter, former press secretary, Romer
You did a fabulous job!!
Cathy Walsh, former legislative director, Romer
The book is fantastic. I particularly noticed
and enjoyed the way some incidents were
recounted by more than one person, giving a
slightly different cast from each. It's so
professionally done, and the portrait of an
amazing man jumps out of the book like a
Vince and Irene Clurman Prichard
Bravo! What a wonderful idea you had, and what a
good job you did in making it a reality. It's a
wonderful keepsake of a time and of people who
were once such an important part of our lives.
And a great tribute to those colleagues who left
this life too early (in the case of Melanie and
Joel, way, way, way too early).
Steve Berson, former director, Dept. of
I want you to know just how much RR enjoyed
every detail and how hard he laughed (as I did)
at his foibles—qualities that we have noticed
here from time to time. You should feel a great
sense of accomplishment.
Maureen Kindel, consultant to LA County School
The book is terrific. Great work.
Former Governor Richard Lamm
Helen, I finally got time last night to read the
book, it's an easy read and a laugh a minute.
The book is awesome. You did a great service to
all of us, gathering these stories and putting
them together, with photos of everyone, too.
When I got the book, I just grabbed a chair, sat
down and read it, laughing all the way through.
I'm amazed at the consistent impression of the
governor, and the genuine affection for him and
all his idiosyncrasies. What a guy. Thanks so
much for doing it. It's a great way to remember
all the wonderful times, not just with the
governor, but also with all the great people
associated with him over time.
Meg Porfido, former Chief Legal Counsel/Chief of
Staff, Romer Administration
The book turned out just great. I learned so
much about Roy that I never knew before. I also
learned a lot about the other people in his life
that I didn't know before. My mom loved it, too!
You did a great job and I will treasure the book
Trooper Brent Sprague, former Executive Security
Detail and Governor’s Driver
I loved the book and am so proud to be in it! I
learned a bunch about Roy that I did not know,
and about the people that surrounded him. But
best of all, I learned that the feelings and
respect and admiration and gratitude I have
always felt for him was shared by so many
others. We were fortunate to have him as our
