    While Dr. Abeloff was indirectly responsible for my cancer healing, it was a staff of 4 radiology technichians, my oncologist Dr. Maria Jacobs, the RN Nurse Linda Gallagher, jazz pianist Andy Fields, Louise the receptionist, primary physician Doctor Gopal Gobaj, my wife Carol Lian, the members of the Eastridge Baptist Church in Lutherville and piano technician Phil Warfield. These people were honored on my CD Innocence, The Green Spring Suite with compositions I composed for them while I was in treatment in 2002 at the Green Spring Oncology Clinic in Lutherville, Maryland.
    “The Silence of the Heart” was dedicated to Dr. Abeloff because he was head of the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center Baltimore and did tireless work for the cause of healing cancer wordwide. He pased away last year, ironically, of cancer. His widow, Diane Abeloff, was in attendence at this concert on Nov. 9th 2010.

    I finally managed to listen to Jack Reilly’s “The Silence Of The Heart”. I have been a fan of his for many years – in my opinion he is one of the finest jazz pianists we have. This music is utterly beautiful and I cannot recommend too highly to your readers to watch and listen to the video. I am sure they will find it rewarding.
