fan's room


Mrs. Goulet

The last time Mr. G and you were working in Sacramento, (Mr. Robert Goulet staring in Camelot) I had the rare pleasure of being your driver, and I also made points with my bosses by being able to find a Mondovi label that Mr. Goulet was particularly fond of. I was on staff with the Sacramento Music Circus, and I remember how skillfully and gracefully you comported yourself, dealing with Carol Lawrence's vindictive pursuit, all in an effort to hawk her tell all tome. It was a privilege to be able to observe a true great in our industry, and I was touched with how gracious and giving Mr. Goulet was toward his audience. Through him I was able to see that the demands of stardom include elements that the average fan has no way of knowing. And I was utterly impressed with your tenacious devotion and dedication to protecting Mr. Goulet, so that he was free to focus his God given gift, to entertain. It was also apparent how important you were to projecting him in the best light. It is sad that the entertainment industry no longer produces luminaries the like of Mr. Goulet. He was truly a classic and classy star.

Though deeply saddened by his passage (my wife also passed away in October) I waited to send this note, because I figured that you must have been deluged with condolences from around the world. My hope is that this note finds you at a quiet moment, as I am sure that the last few months have been quite hectic. I can imagine that you have had a tremendous volume of correspondence of late, so I understand that a response is unlikely. I just wanted to add my remembrances to a life, the likes of which we shall not see again.

With Deepest Respect and Regard

Just wanted you to know how sadden I am to hear of Mr. G’s passing. I will never forget the good times we had in Dallas and how kind you and Mr.G have always been to me. I will miss him but I will never forget you and I will pray for you daily. I don’t drive much anymore but I will if you ever come back to Dallas, Texas. I’m now the chauffeur trainer and chauffeur manager at AJL Limousine Co. in Fort Worth, Texas. I hope to finish my career with this company, I will be 62 years old in June 2008, so, I will be slowing down some????? Maybe. Thanks again for all of the memories, you will always have a place in my heart.

My Dearest Goulet Family: What I will always treasure is at the top of my list of "Reasons To Respect Robert Goulet" - the fact that he realized that he didn't have to take himself too seriously. The ESPN commercials, Nuts, Candy Bars...I believe these light hearted jabs at himself will cement his legacy as being a good guy and willing to take a chance. Thank you for sharing The Man, The Music and The Career of an extremely talented entertainer.

Stay strong in these dark times. I pray for your family.

God Bless.

Mrs. Goulet and family, My heartfelt prayers are with you and your family. Mr. Goulet was always one of my favorite singers and actors. As a child of the ‘60’s and ‘70’s, I will always remember him on television specials and guest appearances on variety shows. His Christmas music is always played in our home. Although I did not know Mr. Goulet, I sent him an e-mail a few years ago wishing him a Happy Birthday. To my surprise, knowing he is was a busy man, he took the time to e-mail me back with a thank you. I will always cherish that. God bless you and your family, Tim Weir, Winchester, VA.


Hello Family,
I am so sad for us all that Robert voice is still....I listen to his song on his web site..
Prayers for you All,
Regards. Pat



He was a great talent and his music will live forever .My thoughts and prayers are with you and the rest for your family.

With deepest sympathy,
Bob Tracy


I would just like to tell you how much I have enjoyed the music and voice of Mr. Goulet. His voice is one that I would recognize any where and any time. If you can say a man's voice is beautiful, then his is. I say is and not was because his music will live on forever in the hearts of those who love him and his music.

My son had the pleasure of meeting Michael McKay and told him how I was a fan and had been one for years. He was going to ask Mr. Goulet for an autograph for me, but unfortunately that was not possible. Mr. McKay was kind enough to give me the booklet from Mr. Goulet's mass of Christian burial. I will be foever grateful for that.

I am so sorry that Mr. Goulet will not be here in person to entertain and mesmirize his fans, but as I said before, he will live on in the hearts and minds of all who love him.

I am sure that his wonderful voice is making the angels envious.

Just One of a Million Fans,

To the Goulet family:
I met Robert personally behind a casino in Las Vegas around 33 years ago. My father and stepmother were walking ahead of me when I observed Robert exiting from behind the casino with about three dogs. We had seen his show that evening. I had a very normal conversation with him and he was quite pleasant. I had a card from the casino with his picture on it. He autographed it for me - "Eileen, God love you". I still have that card in my possession.
Not only did he have a wonderful voice and style, most women would have to agree he was extremely handsome. I am very saddened of his passing.
I, too, lost my husband in December 2006 after 30 years of marriage. My husband was also tall, dark and handsome. He was not conceited or a user of women as some people may surmise of handsome men. I miss him a lot.

Eileen Icaza


To the Family of Robert Goulet:

Magnificent, incredible, extraordinary and unique are only a few of the adjectives that describes the voice of Robert Goulet. I have been a fan of his for over 40 years and am proud to have many of his LPs and CDs in my collection. I've always wanted to see him perform in person but regret I never got the chance to do so. Many years ago I remember enjoying seeing him in a television production of "Carousel."

Robert Goulet will always be in my thoughts and prayers. My prayers are also with you. I'm certain, after hearing Robert's beautiful voice, the good Lord needed him to sing in His choir of angels.

May God be with you and send His Holy Spirit to comfort you in your time of sorrow.

Most sincerely,
Philip Cafiero





Hello, I just wanted to share with you, that I am having a bit of a hard time letting Robert go...he is on my mind a lot,,and I was only a fan,,saw him in Camelot, caught his shows on t.v. , saw the PBS special recently,,but always loved his voice and his choice of songs,..yet his passing has stayed with me,,he seemed like such a nice guy,,I can only imagine what you are all feeling,,and going thru,,,God Bless., Daisey


Dear Vera and family—

I am so sorry for your loss.

I have been a fan of Robert Goulet since I was 10 years old. All my friends
had posters of Frankie Avalon, Fabian, Beach Boys—I had one of Robert.

I had the privilege of attending a concert of his in Minneapolis, and, also South Pacific.
I also saw him in Man of La Mancha and Camelot in St. Paul. He was incredible!
His voice will live forever!

My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

God Bless..

Mrs. Goulet,

Tomorrow is going to be a very difficult day for you. Please know that loads of people are still thinking of you and saying prayers.

God bless.



Dear Mrs. Goulet,

Robert Goulet has been my favorite singer for the past 40 years. I am so sorry to hear of his passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your children.

I have seen Mr. Goulet many times over the years and when he was in South Pacific in San Francisco my daughter and her husband took me and my husband to see the show. She arranged for me to go back stage to meet Robert and took a picture of him and me. Your husband had a most beautiful voice.

God bless you all.



Dear Mrs. Goulet:

It was so sweet of you to respond to my sympathy letter. How many people would take the time! It is so evident that all of you are wonderful, thoughtful people and much loved by everyone. Robert was that bright spot in people's lives, lifting them up to the greatest heights with his magnificent voice! I will play his Christmas album all during the holidays and fill my home with joy and peace.

Thank you for sending the pictures of the family, all of you look so happy and loving!! And you, Vera, must have made Robert very happy because he is just beaming!!

My Husband and I live in Austin, Texas. My husband used to play the cello in a symphony orchestra and we are into music in every aspect. When we saw "Camelot", we said that it was a treasure to hold in our hearts forever. How lucky we were to get to see it and will always remember his Lancelot!!!!

I know that this Christmas will be very difficult for you but like Robert said, "you are strong" and the Lord will see you through. Remember you have millions of people saying prayers for you and sending their love through letters and calls. Draw some strength from that.

I send love and a warm embrace to you and the family.

To the Goulet Family,

We heard of Mr. Goulet's untimely death while aboard a cruise ship. We were very shocked at the news. We just saw him perform last year. When we came home we looked in the newspapers for his obit and cut it our for us to save forever.

We saw Robert Goulet perform many times, on Ed Sullivan's show, and live starting in the 60's at Theatre in the Round, I believe was in (Covina?) CA. We loved every minute of all his performances.

Our most recent time to be in the audience was October 2006 at Citrus College in Azusa, CA. It was a great show.

Robert was the same age as my husband.

Our sympathy to all of you,

Bea & Paul Gougeon


Dear Goulet Family:

I want you to know how sorry I am about your loss. I have been a fan of Mr. Goulet's ever since I was a little boy and watched him on his detective show (which I recall was titled "Blue Light") in the 1960's. I absolutely love his voice and was treated to a performance by his son, who sounds much like him, about ten years ago at a performance of Camelot in Culver City. It is wonderful to know that such talent continues.

My very best to you.

Craig Veals


I just wanted to say how terribly sad it is that Mr. Goulet has passed. I grew up listening to that wonderful voice and just loved hearing it. For Christmas I have asked for a couple of his CDs so I can go on listening to that wonderful voice and remembering those beautiful blue eyes that sparkled so.


Im a thirty nine year old architect living in Silver Spring MD. I've always been a big fan of the big voices, and Mr. Goulet's certainly qualified. The world has lost her Lancelot, there can never be another.

My heart is with you and yours,


Dear Vera,

Robert Goulet was one of the most nicest people I ever met. I first saw Robert in 1972 when I was 15 years old with my mom. I fell in love with him and have been a fan ever since. I had seen Robert on many occasions and I got to meet him twice. The last time was in 2002 when he was performing in South Pacific. I came back stage to meet him. I was so excited, I felt like a school girl all over again. Not many performers and actors would take the time to meet with their fans. That was very special quality of Robert Goulet. I will always play his music and remember him. He was truly a gift to all of us.

I am so sorry you had to lose him when he was fighting so hard. Always cherish his memories and that you made him very happy for all the years you were married. May you have a wonderful holiday, sad without Robert, but spending the time with your family.

My sincere condolences and heartfelt wishes.

Dear Vera & Family
Today is that glorious day 74 years ago God sent us all a gift a beautiful voice an man Robert . and so God wanted to celebrate Robert's birthday in Heaven.

Wishing you all peace in your hearts you are all in my prayers.


The Holidays will always be more special because we have his music. May God richly bless you and give you peace.

Matthew Simmons


This is Joan Pegram. I want to express my sorrow of the passing of Robert. He was and will remain the finest singer in the world for me. My tears have been flowing each and every day since his passing. God Bless all of you!


I truly am sorry to hear about this terrible loss. I had the honor to work for you. For a short but, pleasant time back in 1996-1997 at ROGO & ROVE. You guys were always kind and generous. He always lit up the room and the employee meetings. Again, I am so sorry. I know how much the family and staff loved him. He really did have song in his heart.

God bless you all in your time of need. Thank you for the honor of knowing this beautiful man and family.

Your in my thoughts and prayers,

Chauntel Hahn


I appreciate that this wonderful man's website is still active. I go there almost daily to listen to Mr. Goulet sing to me. I do own most every record he ever did, but being able to listen on line is wonderful. Thank you, god bless and know that all will be okay.



Dear Goulet Family:

Please accept my deepest condolences over the loss of your beloved father and husband. May God sustain you in your hour of need.

I will never forget this talented, handsome man who brought so much joy to so many with his beautiful voice. They say that "Music is the Stairway to Heaven" and if that is true, he is singing to the angels now.

With deepest sympathy to all the Goulet Family.

Joyce John


Dear Vera,

After Robert died I ordered all of his cd's that I could find. My wife and I got married 36 years ago and one of our first records was his My Love Forgive Me. The cd's have arrived and we have been listening to them and, as my wife says, it brings back our first years together. I only had the pleasure of seeing Robert in person one time but his records and cd's I will treasure forever. His talent was one of a kind and you can tell by the way he sounds on the cd's that he cared to be perfect. Loved him--always will.

Mark Solbach, Stockton, CA


Thinking of you this holiday season as we listen to Mr. Goulets wonderful music. Wanted to thank you and your family for sharing him with us. My husband Charles was honored to drive for both of you when you visited Portland Oregon for performances. He works for Classic Chauffer. I met Mr. Goulet backstage after Camelot, he was so fun, and at one time swept me up for a quick dance around the welcome area! I danced with Arthur! He had a wonderful way of sharing himself and his talent. We so enjoyed him. Hope you can find some small comfort during the holiday season knowing what you both have given to all of us, God Bless you all.

Cathy Barney
Portland, Oregon


I know this Thanksgiving must be hard. But, we can always give thanks for the music Robert left behind. My mom and dad were fans of the arts. I grew up with the sound of Camelot in our house. In fact, I have the CD in my car, and this music gives legacy to his passing. There will only be one Lancelot... for all time.
God Bless,

Gary Martinez

Hello Mrs. Goulet,

You were in my thoughts and I hope that you and your family are doing well. Sorry it took me so long to reply to you. I thank you for responding you are truly a strong woman and I guess you are right we do
know one another in that silent place.

Through your grief your love will grow for Robert. The memories will be vivid and the joy and laughter you shared are only a thought away. He is gone from this world but he is never far from your heart and mind. Think of him and he will be there for you even in this time of grief.

All my best,


Before October 30, 2007


You were the first "star" for whom I was the opening act. It was in Framingham, MA, way back when, actually after my first appearance on the Tonight Show on January 8, 1971, and it helped to springboard my career.

I want you to know that I am confident that you will be back on stage soon, and I am volunteering to be your opening act again at the same shit money you paid me the first time ($1,500), which, at that time, was a fortune. I'm sure that when you are well, I am going to regret writing this.

I also want you to know that, in a tribute to your talent and your understanding of a new act who screwed up on how much time he was supposed to do on stage, I am going to continue to tell the story of this always, starting at a gig tomorrow night.

Robert, I wish you everything that I would wish a loved one in my family. You were always kind and supportive of me, and I have always been a major fan of your remarkable talent, even though I hated when you lovingly punched me in the stomach. What the hell was that about anyway?

I love you, Robert, always have and always will. Please get well back on stage quickly. This world can always use special talent from special people and that describes you.

Thanks for that early gig. I was dead broke when I did it. Actually, I had all I was worth in life in my pocket - $3.00. Also, thanks for all your talent. What a voice!!!!!!!!

Your fan and friend forever,

David Brenner


Dear Vera, Dearest Vera,

My heart is aching for you both. Just the thought of Robert makes me smile and to know that he has been given this health tragedy is unfathomable. Not Robert. It’s hard to imagine. You must be so very frightened. You and Robert are like Alan and I …never apart… Pals. Best friends, everything to each other. I will pray tonight to send him and you love and energy and I will call you tomorrow.

My love , and my heart goes out to you both. Love, Suzanne Somers








Pull through. That's an order. You're a treasure, an icon, and a
gentleman. Penn and I are cheering for you.


Tell me what I can do to help, please.



Robert and Vera,

We were so sorry to learn of your recent illness and wanted to let you
know that you're in the thoughts and prayers of each and every resident,
program participant, staff member and board trustee at Loretto - which,
as you know, is a formidable group of loving and caring individuals some
7,000 strong.

We were especially shocked by the news because of the tremendous
performance you gave us and Central New Yorkers just a few short weeks
ago. Robert's powerful vocals from that memorable night to benefit the
Loretto Foundation still resound and will never be forgotten. Nor will
your incredible graciousness and generosity with your time and talents,
particularly your visit to residents in our Cunningham Skilled Nursing
facility who could not attend your performance.

Please know that your many fans in Central New York, including Loretto
and our "Robert Goulet: The Man and His Music" concert sponsors, the
Central New York Jazz Orchestra (who were honored to provide your
musical backup), and the Palace Theatre staff, as well as our friends in
the entertainment media all wish you a speedy recovery - we know that
you've still got a lot of singing to do!

With our love and prayers,

Mary Jo Barnello & Michael Connor

p.s. - Thought you might enjoy the attached two best photos from the
Sept. 20 concert and post-performance reception featuring you both and
Vincent, as well as Mary Cotter, president of Time Warner Cable,
Syracuse, which sponsored the performance.

I don't know if you remember me but I shared a dressing room with Robert a few years back while we were both performing in a PBS special at the City Center in NYC. It was a highlight of my career to be able to spend time with one of my heroes. I'm so saddened to hear of Robert's illness and just wanted to drop a line and wish him and you the very best. I know with all of the good energy being sent your way, he will fully recover and thrill audiences for years to come. I send you both my personal good thoughts and wishes.

Hi Vera,

I am so very sorry to hear the news about Robert and I hope and pray that he will get the transplant that he needs and that he will be able to continue to hit those notes until he's 100. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you and that if you need anything here in Las Vegas, don't hesitate to call.

Bobbie (Katz)



I had not heard about Robert and do appreciate your sending this to me. I will be sure to keep all of you in my prayers and will light a candle at church for him. Prayer is powerful and we have to believe that he will prevail.

I am sending you all the support I can and try to remain positive.



Anita Dloniak


Dear Mr. Goulet,
I am so sorry to hear that you are ailing. Your voice still echoes strongly over the years and to a new generation of youngsters. My nephew, Brian has become a fan of yours through your singing for "Mikey" in the "Recess" TV series.
I hope your recovery won't take too long and that you'll be back onstage again in the near future.

All good wishes,
Ellen Krauss

My thoughts and prayers are with you both.


I am saddened by this news. I have put out an email to my prayer list. You and Robert are in my thoughts and prayers. Stay strong, my friend.

Georgia Durante


Dear Vera:

It is always very difficult to find the right words of encouragement on times like this. No one can image what Robert, you and the family are going thru in these very trying times.

Just be strong and turn to the Almighty. He will give you all the needed strength to weather this storm as he looks after Robert and sees that he recuperates very soon.

You can rest assured that my prayers will join the prayers of all the others that want to see a healthy Robert and hear his wonderful voice.

Keep the faith.

Nelson Sardelli


Dear Vera,

I will keep Robert in my prayers, I pray for him day and night and for your well being also. I can only think, see and send positive thoughts and energy his way. I have asked friends to pray for him and hope for a positive

If you need me to email or call Cedars just let me know and I will do it. You both have my love and support during this difficult time.

Love and hugs,


Oh Vera, I am so happy that you are in Robert's life !

You have always seen through appearances...times that have been dark and know that they are...NOT what really is, but what they appear to be..and that can be very confusing, but you know the difference.

Just KNOW...that there will be a confirmation on this transplant...and that it will happen...keep telling Bob that he can trust this decision..they are the the right one's to do this...he must acknowledge that, "The most difficult thing to do in life is letting something unfold".(Say this to him.) Love, Chris


Dear Vera - Thank you so much for letting me know about Robert's condition and where you are. Coincidentally, I have been thinking about you both these last few weeks and wondering how you were doing in general. Of course I didn't know about Robert being in the hospital but maybe on some level I unknowingly sensed it.

I will keep you both in my prayers and will send positive thoughts. I know you both are very strong people, and I have faith that everything here will work out.

Once again thanks for letting me know.

Love and prayers to you both,

I will also send out a prayer request to my personal "prayer chain," a group of friends that believe in the power of the spirit to heal.

Much love, I will talk to you soon -

Hi Vera,

I got an email from Wayne Spellman today - he's coming to Omaha with SPAMALOT in a couple of weeks - he said you had emailed him that Robert was ill. Please know that Dick and I are thinking of you both and will send good thoughts and prayers your way for Robert's speedy recovery.

Hugs to both of you!

I am so sorry to hear of your lung disease. I will be praying that they find a lung for you soon. I know what it means to have lung disease. I've had COPD/emphysema for 6 years and have been on oxygen 24/7 for the last 5-1/2 years. God's blessings upon you.

I read in today's RJ about Robert Goulet's battle with pulmonary fibrosis. I lost my father to this on June 9th this year. He had been complaining of fatigue for almost two years-he often said his bones felt like jelly. We finally got the right Dr. in March who put him on oxygen and diagnosed him correctly. I know you know by now what a horrible disease this is,and you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. I am hoping however this will raise awareness of this horrible disease-especially amongst the medical community. It is so often misdiagnosed-as with my father. At the end-he couldn't walk 5 feet without having to stop and rest. After it was all over, two of his new Dr's told me it was for the best that he had passed on. We had taken him out for an early Father's Day on June 8th this year as I was to leave with my family for a vacation to Italy on the 11th. After a nice dinner at the Rampart Carmel Room, he went home only to call an ambulance and was admitted into Mountain View at 3 AM. Four hours later on June 9th at 7:30 AM-the hospital called me and told me he had been admitted, been put on a vent,and had passed soon after.

I really hope Mr. Goulet's disease raises awareness as this is a very unheard of illness. I am so sorry for what you are going through.

Marcia Chami



You know, you're more than welcome to take one of my lungs. Hey, it's the
least I can do to help keep that beautiful voice of yours singing...

I let Mom know what's going on, expect a card from her in the next few

Love you lots, I'm praying as hard as I can for you. Get well soon !!

My thoughts and prayers are with you, your family and friends. My mother was diagnosed with this disease 3 ½ years ago. One of the scariest things about this disease is the lack of information and treatment. The Coalition of Pulmonary Fibrosis is a very helpful website and Huff n Puff is a great support site for you and your family.

Dear Mr and Mrs. Goulet,

Although I know you cannot respond, I want you to know my thoughts and prayers are with you both and your family at this awful time. Be strong and know your fans are praying for you.

I was lucky enough to see you twice on Broadway. Once in Camelot and most recently with Bryan Bhatt in La Cage. Both brilliant performances. I feel honoured to have seen them.

Very Sincerely,

Maria DeVita-Krug

My name is Patricia and I live in Jacksonville, FL.

I just wanted to say how sorry I really am to hear of Robert's condition. My heartfelt prayers are with you, your family and friends.

God bless you all.



Dear Robert,

I hope as I send this you are feeling better and that the hospital has located a lung ready for transplant for you. I remember as a kid growing up in the sixties seeing you on just about every variety show that was on----my 5th grade teacher reminded me of you—he had the same jet black hair and side burns like you did back then. I really love the emerald commercial you have done---it is really hilarious. Soon after you get your transplant and are feeling much better I look forward to seeing you in even more emerald commercials—the whole “goulet” concept is a great idea. You are in my thoughts and prayers, and I wish you a speedy recovery.

I have to contact you regarding the news that Robert Goulet has Pulmonary Fibrosis.

My father died in 2006 of PF. He and his 2 daughters fought hard with 2 hospitals to get him a lung transplant. One of those hospitals being Mount Sinai in NY.

He was turned down by both. They stated that his age was the factor. He died at the age of 68 on Jan. 7, 2006, 4 days after his birthday.

He was born in 1938, 5 years after Robert Goulet. I say this because it has become infinitely obvious that the reason my father never even had the opportunity to get on a list, but Mr. Goulet can, is MONEY!!!!!!!!!!

I don't begrudge Mr. Goulet the right to life. I would have done anything if I had the means, to save my father's life. I am writing to you because I just can't wrap my brain around the fact that Cedar's Sinai is viewing Robert Goulet's life more valuable than my father's and many other people that deserved a lung, but have been turned down (without actually being told this) because of having Medicare as the responsible party for payment.

My father was told he was too old. Robert Goulet is 74. My father was 67 at the time he was turned down. This is fair? He was just as worthy and valuable as Mr. Goulet and I think this should be brought to the forefront of discussion.

After you read this you will be very angry. am I. I truly wish Robert Goulet a long and healthy life, but my father deserved one too. It is painfully obvious to me that because of Mr. Goulet's celebrity status and financial means, he went to the top of the list. THAT does disgust me.

I will be voicing this to every damn coalition and organization that I can possibly come up with as will my sister, her husband and all of our friends and family. I hope you join the Coalition for Pulmonary Fibrosis and voice your support for the issues that I have mentioned in this e-mail. While you have a long road ahead of you...atleast you have a road.

Dear Ms. Thompson,

I lost my mother two years ago and know first hand the pain, the grief and the void that a person losing a loved one faces for the rest their life.

But, without knowing the facts, your comments are not only grossly unfair and unwarranted, but quite frankly insulting.

If it was a question of MONEY the process would be simple.

My husband was not conscious when he was hospitalized and he has been hanging by the thread of his life for 23 days. You state "that Cedar's Sinai is viewing Robert Goulet's life is more valuable than my father's and many other people that deserved a lung" well I have NEWS for you. It is precisely because of who my husband is that he has not yet been accepted.

Through these crucial hours I am fighting the system and the bureaucracy which exists, not just for my Robert but for others who are in the same position and need a lung transplant.

And I will fight with every being in my body and soul to save his life. My husband is a 73 year old in a 60 year old body. His heart, kidneys and liver are in excellent shape. He is physically strong and has taken good care of himself. He has used his lungs and his god given talent all of his life to bring joy to millions.

Anyone else going through what he has endured in the past 23 days would have not made it past the first week. Only people who have held a bedside vigil, watching the person they love helpless and venerable, talking to them without getting a response would understand the grief and the pain his children and I are feel.

It is certainly your prerogative to be angry, but not so when you only presume you know the facts.

In the past 23 days I have maybe had 30 hours of sleep therefore I cannot waste my energy on your anger. I need my strength to focus on the problem, not just for him but also to fight the protocol and the red tape that my husband and others like him have to face in order to live.

In closing, I will tell you that I have traveled long, hard, and more often than not, dark roads in my life, yet I cannot recall anyone, ever, even in anger saying such cruel, unkind and thoughtless things.

I was not going to respond to your letter, but decided to do so because after reading it again, I see beyond your anger as to how sad and freighted you still are. I will pray for you and hope that you will find some peace.

Dear Mrs Goulet,
I am so sorry to hear about your husbands diagnosis of IPF as my mother was diagnosed with it 3 ½ years ago. It is very scary because there is so little information, treatment is limited and there is no cure in sight. My mom now has a “shadow” on her lung which is probably lung cancer. But because of this disease she is not able to have a lung biopsy, and without a biopsy treatment can not start because they don’t know what type of cancer it is. I hate this disease for all it takes from my mom. The simplest things, like pulling up her blinds winds her to where her nails and lips are purple and she has to sit down. I know this is the last thing on your mind right now but I beg you to use your ability get awareness made about this disease, so that other families don’t have to go through this. The Coalition for Pulmonary Fibrosis is a great sight for information and is a great support sight. If you need to talk to someone who knows the fear and anger that goes with this please feel free to email me. And if it some point you decide to do some kind of fund raiser I will always be willing to help in anyway.
Thank you and God Bless,

Dear Mrs. Goulet...
Oh, I am so very sorry to hear the news about Robert. I am keeping the both of you in my constant prayers.

I met your husband many years ago in San Francisco, in a coffee shop of all places-when I had turned in my chair and saw him, I immediately poured my hot chocolate down the front of my new coat-of course it was an accident-I was maybe 7 or 8 years old at the time. In the late 70's, I had written to Robert and told him the story and not once, but twice he sent me a note-I still keep the correspondence and the signed photos very near to my heart as even as a child, I thought he was/is about the greatest entertainer ever!

My prayers are with Robert and you :)
With Love,
Irene Reid


Dear Vera:

I'm devastated to hear the news about Robert.
You are both in my prayers and I do believe in Miracles!

Phyllis McGuire


Dearest Vera:

I'm overwhelmed with sadness as Robert has been such a wonderful friend to, and champion for, me since 1968, when he began the parade of stars to have fun with me on my weather forecasts, and my talk shows in Las Vegas, and other cities, subsequently.

I was truly praying something like this would never happen to him, and wished only the best for him always. We shared many, many wonderful private and professional times together, and thanks to you, I was able to share the joy to see him more frequently in performance in later years. It's heartwarming to see the outpouring of love for him, especially from a mutual friend like Phyllis McGuire. No one will ever be more prayed for than dear Robert, for whom, as you know, I was trying to bring to fruition any project in which he'd ever wish to star or produce. That's all minutiae compared to what exists now, which, of course, is his treasured and very necessary survival.

There are many tears flowing while typing this, but please know that Phyllis's comment about believing in miracles is shared by many, including me. If anyone ever deserved a miracle, it's Robert. Please convey my deepest, most heartfelt love and prayers to him, even though he can't respond. Please.

Blessings, love and more prayers than are imaginable to you both...

Dear Robert,

I grew up listening to you and your beautiful voice. I just read about your
illness via a popular blog, and wanted to wish you well.

I pray you will recover ... don't give up! The world needs you!

Love and Respect,
