We learned yesterday that a dear friend in the community passed away. Dr. Mayer Eisenstein was a hero, champion and one of the kindest human beings I have been privileged to know. He touched the lives of thousands of families including my own.
This was the Facebook entry I posted when I got an email from Mayer last year:
Pinch me. I'm on the phone with Dr. Mayer Eisenstein. He's asked me to be on his show tonight about the vaccine bullying article I wrote that went up on AofA yesterday. Wheeeee!
We spoke for almost an hour that morning. I savored every word.
Dr. Eisenstein was as passionate about parents' rights and children's health as I am. I had the best time talking with him both on the phone call and later in the evening on the radio show. I consider that opportunity to be one of the biggest highlights of my life.
Mayer was one of the finest. May his family find comfort and may we honor Mayer's memory for many years to come.
Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
