Saluting a special physician

As I sit looking out at the snow-filled yard, my thoughts turn to you and your family.

You cared for my mom, my husband and me for 20-plus years? More than 30, I think?

Is that correct?

Your patience, guidance, and understanding of us all was outstanding.

Blessings to you as you journey on. We have been so blessed by having you.
