Boldova Eugenia Gennadievna for the data afforded
He had passed away. A man
with vivid eyes, subtle sense of humour, "the customary pipe in his mouth"
and a very expressive whisper. He couldn't speak well
was wrong with his voice. Him
– the Genius
of his profession even the most titled colleagues couldn't heal. But perhaps
he was the only one who had something except regalia but worth any titles.
It was Humaneness. He was taking up those who didn't hope any more to get
help; those whom local doctors – didn't know what to do or didn't want to
get involved with unconventional patients – sent to Moscow. And people were
going and coming to that man who could hear, understand and support. He
was predicting and deciding fates – he was taking upon himself responsibility
of choice and retribution for mistakes. He proved, convinced, persuaded:
He was ill in his soul for his patients and that's why for many of them
He was a spiritual Father. Those children can never forget Him. May Your
memory live forever, a Doctor and a Man!
