  • From Charles Van Riper (in ASHA magazine, February 1980). "The death of Bryng Bryngelson leaves a deep gap in the lives of thousands of his students and clients. May I speak for them as well as for myself? One of the first pioneers in our profession, Bryng had great impact. A marvelous clinician, an inspiring teacher, a ribald mystic, he enjoyed life hugely and helped all he met to do so too. Bryng knew well, what some of us seem to have forgotten, that the clinician's gay spirit and deep concern for the client constitute the essence of competence. He lives onward in all who knew him and in those whom we, in turn, have served. Ave et Vale!"

  • From Lorie Bryngelson (personal email) - I was at a memorial service and met a woman named Duffy. Her mother was Bryng's secretary. She told me that her mother was moping around the office so Bryng suggested she take a break, go to the islands and look for a husband. She went and she did!
