Uplifting Words from Composer’s Sister


Composer Michael Ruggieri talks after the screening about his experience as a composer.

Deana Ruggieri, the composer's sister wrote a wonderful email to us after the screening. I asked if I could share it and she said yes. It is very uplifting.

"...I wanted to tell you how very much I enjoyed the film. Congratulations! It was entertaining, informative, uplifting..I also can't wait to see your parents again...they rock!!!

From a scientific perspective, it inspired me to learn more, to become informed so I can understand the questions that the film raises...fascinating subject.

From the perspective of someone who has had the pleasure of knowing you and your family for the past years, it made me love you all even more! Your mother -- your dad...they were wonderful!!! All the miracles in your lives were an excellent story to tell as they were woven in with the scientific aspect of the film. Also, Dean and I always have loved your mom's personality so much, and seeing her on the big screen...and watching her journey, the humor...off the charts!! I can't wait for Dean to see the film, and I look forward to seeing it again.

I will be anxious to see what impact your film has on the scientific community...I hope it does everything you dream...

The graphics were great...I am so glad one of your audience members addressed that last night...and also, you make an excellent narrator...you did a terrific job David!! Very impressed, and inspired...you are one of several people I know who have completed long term projects as we close 2013...it's really great!!

And last, but not least, I am so grateful that you gave Michael, my dear, sweet brother, the opportunity to share his talents...I thought the music was incredible...and if I didn't know him, I would think the guy who did the music for your movie has done it a 100 times!! I am so proud of him for sticking with it and having the faith to see it through...may it build his confidence and inspire him to follow his heart...and continue to express himself musically, as that is who he is inside...Thank you.

All the best David to you and all of the DeHilster clan!!
