Richard Glatzer's Husband Releases Statement on His Death

Richard Glatzer‘s husband Wash Westmoreland is speaking out in an eloquent statement following the death of his soul-mate and Still Alice collaborator.

“I am devastated. Rich was my soul mate, my collaborator, my best friend and my life. Seeing him battle ALS for four years with such grace and courage inspired me and all who knew him,” Wash said in his statement. “In this dark time, I take some consolation in the fact that he got to see Still Alice go out into the world. He put his heart and soul into that film, and the fact that it touched so many people was a constant joy to him.”

“Thank you to everyone for this huge outpouring of love. Richard was a unique guy — opinionated, funny, caring, gregarious, generous, and so so smart. A true artist and a brilliant man. I treasure every day of the short twenty years we had together,” Wash continued. “I cannot believe he has gone. But in my heart and the hearts of those who loved him he will always be alive.”

    How sad. I just saw the wonderful interview with him and his cast. He was such a generous and kind man who expressed his feelings toward each cast member, and they in turn said they put everything they had into making this a great movie for him. He was so happy that Julianne had won an Oscar for her performance. How wonderful that he was able to see it through to fruition. We raise a lot of money for Alzheimer’s disease and we recommend this film to anyone who has a loved one inflicted with this disease. RIP Richard Glatzer!

    Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive, degenerative disorder that attacks the brain’s nerve cells, or neurons, resulting in loss of memory, thinking and language skills, and behavioral changes. To be able to have written, and directed this movie and have it recognized globally hopefully brings a better awareness of the disease. He left this world knowing he gave something important, of himself, to help others going forward.
