I've had the privilege of working with Ernie at TSRI over the past five years. He possessed a combination of intellectual rigor, creative thinking, encyclopedic knowledge, and the wisdom to put these gifts together in an extraordinarily productive manner. I'm grateful to have had the opportunity to work with him and learn from him.

I am Susie Wells, Dr. Beutler's (Uncle Ernie as I fondly called him), "patient patient." He is and always will be MY HERO, My Guardian Angel. I was his first patient from January 1990 on the low-dose Ceredase clinical trial that SAVED MY LIFE, that gave me a SECOND CHANCE at life! Dr. Beutler and I have kept in touch all these years, and I promised to always stand up to everyone on his behalf for his hard work in trying a low-dose regimen when others disagreed with his hypotheses. I would not be here writing if it weren't for my dear Dr. Beutler. I love him and miss him terribly, and there will NEVER be another more dedicated doctor/researcher on this earth. I thank you, Uncle Ernie, with all my heart, with every breath I take, thank you! Your Patient Patient eternally grateful, till we meet again.

We are so disheartened to hear of Dr. Beutler's passing. Our son is now almost 27 and doing remarkably well. At the time of his diagnosis with Gaucher's we were being besieged by the drug salesmen regarding Ceredase. My physician husband did his research and we ended up at Scripps. Dr. Beutler met with our entire family when we flew in from Houston. His kindness, empathy and calming manner bring tears to me. This was a hard journey and he was by far the best thing that happened along the way.
